Art in the movies

Not such a big surprise that when the two big art entertainment D’s of the 1940s, Dali and Disney, got together they reached for a D word and called their animation Destino. It is based on a song by another D guy, Mexican Armando Dominguez, who also did the music. The war and financial difficulties in the Disney business stopped production which was revived by Roy Disney in 1999. The six minute version of Destino was first shown in 2003 at the International Animated Film Festival in Annecy, France. This film clip is only a trailer but still gives a good idea of Dali's contribution.
