NOVEMBER 11, 2018
Tyrus is Pamela Tom’s tour-de-force documentary about Guangzhou-born, American artist, Tyrus Wong, his breathtaking scope of work across multiple artistic mediums, and his personal and professional journey navigating racial bigotry in 20th century America. Beginning with his arrival to the immigration detention center at Angel Island in 1919, 9 year old Tyrus would overcome a life of poverty and discrimination to become a renowned painter and Hollywood sketch artist. The film will show how the quiet beauty of Tyrus’s eastern influenced paintings caught the eye of Walt Disney and became the inspiration for the classic animated feature Bambi. For the next 25 years, Tyrus brought his artistry to Warner Brothers where his striking storyboards and set illustrations helped set the tone and drama for films such as The Sands of Iwo Jima, Rebel Without a Cause, William Goldman’s Harper and Sam Peckinpah’s The Wild Bunch.

The panel after the film includes …
– Pamela Tom, Director of Tyrus
– Martha Walker, PhD , Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences, Mary Baldwin University

From the Second Wave to the Tidal Wave/NextStepRun!

MARCH 14, 2019

Screening sponsored by Klines Dairy Bar

The story of filmmaker, Pam Maus, told through the voices of others who came of age and went off to college just in time to be swept up into the Second Wave Feminist Movement. Landmark legislation of 1960’s outlawed discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin and unlocked the doors to social justice. NextStepRun! follows four women from different locations, backgrounds, and political affiliations running for elective office in their local House districts during the 2014 midterm elections. Regardless of their differences, they all have one thing in common: to bring integrity to the legislative process through consensus, collaboration, and inclusion.



APRIL 24, 2019
A thought-provoking look at the life of Costa Rican singer Chavela Vargas, the film weaves an arresting portrait of a woman who dared to dress, speak, perform, and dream to her own unique beat. The film explores the myths and tales others have told about her and those she spread about herself.
