A new documentary about Walt Disney’s trip to Latin America (the inspiration for the Latin America films) is going to be premiered at this year’s San Francisco International Film Fest. It is called Walt and El Grupo, and was directed by Kuniko Okubo and Ted Thomas. You can visit the film’s official website here. The film is being supported by the Walt Disney Family Foundation (the same organization behind the Walt Disney Family Museum set to open in the San Francisco Presidio next year).

I’ll definitely record my impressions here right after I see the film. If you can get to SF in late April, check out the film and let me know what you think! The venue is the Sundance Kabuki Cinemas in San Francisco’s Japantown. Here are the show times:

Sat. Apr. 26th 1:15 PM, Mon. Apr. 28th 6:00 PM, Wed. Apr. 30th 12:30 PM

If you’re looking for a place to eat before or after the show, I highly recommend Takara in the Japantown mall (on the side nearest the hotel). There are many other restaurants in the mall as well. Don’t forget to get some mochi ice cream :P

(Thanks to Loosetoon for this exciting news!)
