What happens when two of the world’s greatest geniuses—a surrealist and an animator—collaborate on a short film?
The result is Destino, a six-minute sequence combining animation with live dancers and special effects in the same format as Fantasia.
Produced in 1945-1946, the film tells the story of Chronos, the personification of time and its inability to realize a desire to love a mortal. While Walt Disney described it as “a simple story about a young girl in search of true love.”
As a fan of both Dalí and Disney, I’m amazed I only saw this now. (Thanks Jude!)
