A superbly crafted documentary about the legendary Disney animator Floyd Norman, the first African American to work as an animator to the studio.

Officially retired, Norman can’t really help but still turn up at Disney as a kind of mentor-in-residence. This is an artist whose life and career has spanned most of the period of animation and is a wonderful, beguiling window into the history as well as the decades of change in animation.
