dalí & disney's destino

"A simple love story, where boy meets girl," Walt Disney described his animation project with Salvador Dalí in 1946. For Dalí it was "a magical exposition on the problem of life in the labyrinth of time." The project was called 'Destino', after a Mexican ballad, but only 20 seconds of animation were ever realized.

In 2003, almost 60 years after their collaboration, the envisioned film was reconstructed from storyboards and sketches. The result is a 6 minute moving surrealist painting / poem which puts both Disney and Dalí in a new light.
