Walt Disney & Salvador Dalí - Destino - 6 Minutes Of Beauty

Salvaor DalÍ, Walt Disney, Destino, Animation, Test Pressing

This beauty comes via Nick the Record. The film tells the story of Chronos, the personification of time and the inability to realise his desire to love for a mortal. The scenes blend the paintings of Dali with dancing and metamorphosis. Production began in 1945, 58 years before its completion and was a collaboration between Walt Disney and Dalí. For some time, the project remained a secret. The work of Dali was to prepare a six-minute sequence combining animation with live dancers and special effects for a movie in the same format of “Fantasia.” Dali in the studio working on The Disney characters are fighting against time, the giant sundial that emerges from the great stone face of Jupiter and that determines the fate of all human novels.

Dalí said: “Entertainment highlights the art, its possibilities are endless. A magical display of the problem of life in the labyrinth of time.”

Walt Disney said it was “A simple story about a young girl in search of true love.”

Lovely. x.
