Walt Disney: An American Experience

On September 14 & 15, 2015, PBS aired Walt Disney: An American Experience, a 2-part, 4-hour biography that offers an unprecedented look at the life and legacy of one of America’s most enduring and influential storytellers and business leaders. Featuring rare archival footage from the Disney vaults, scenes from some of his greatest films, and interviews with biographers and historians, animators and artists, it will tell stories about his triumphs and challenges in a very new way.

Prior to the film’s release, Lou Mongello was invited by the Orlando PBS affiliate, WUCF TV, to host and moderate a panel discussion with the Director and Executive Producer at the Garden Theater in Winter Garden.

You can watch the full version of the film Walt Disney: An American Experience over at PBS.
