MICKEY: THE STORY OF A MOUSE – Interview with Director Jeff Malmberg, Producer Meghan Walsh and Artist/Writer Floyd Norman

Award-winning Filmmaker Jeff Malmberg, Producer Meghan Walsh and legendary Writer/Animator Floyd Norman talked with our Gadi Elkon about the historic documentary, MICKEY:  THE STORY OF A MOUSE.

One of the world’s most beloved icons, Mickey Mouse is recognized as a symbol of joy and childhood innocence in virtually every corner of the globe. Dreamed up at a low point in Walt Disney’s burgeoning career, Mickey became an overnight sensation when he starred in the first synch-sound animated short, Steamboat Willie. Through the decades that followed, the character evolved into strikingly different versions of himself that reflect both his creator’s remarkable career and dramatic societal shifts in the nation he came to represent. In the fascinating documentary Mickey: The Story of a Mouse, director Jeff Malmberg and Oscar®-winning producer Morgan Neville (who previously teamed up together for Won’t You Be My Neighbor?) examine the cultural significance of the nearly 100-year-old cartoon mouse.
