Destino : Salvador Dali & Walt Disney

"Destino" began in 1946 as a collaboration between Walt Disney and the famed surrealist painter Salvador Dali. A first-hand example of Disney's interest in avant garde and experimental work in animation, "Destino" was to be awash with Dali's iconic melting clocks, marching ants and floating eyeballs. However, "Destino" was not completed at that time. In 2003 it was rediscovered by Walt’s nephew, Roy E. Disney, who took on the challenge of bringing the creation of these two great artists to fruition..."

Full seven minute feature currently on view through September 2008 at New York's MOMA in an exhibition called Dalí: Painting and Film
