ONLINE: The Hand Behind the Mouse: The Ub Iwerks Story (Film Streaming) + Conversation with Leslie & Don Iwerks


Ub Iwerks is most-often remembered as the original animator who collaborated directly with Walt Disney, co-creating Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and Mickey and Minnie Mouse. But he was so much more - including Walt's ultimate inventor! Join us for a screening of The Hand Behind the Mouse: The Ub Iwerks Story followed by a conversation with the film’s director Leslie Iwerks and Disney Legend Don Iwerks, the author of Walt Disney's Ultimate Inventor: The Genius of Ub Iwerks, as they talk about his work and enduring family legacy.
