#truestory. In 1946, Dalí and Disney embarked upon a formidable collaboration — to create a six-minute sequence combining animation with live dancers, in the process inventing a new animation technique inspired by Freud’s work "on the unconscious mind and the hidden images with double meaning." The film, titled Destino, tells the tragic love story of Chronos, the personification of time, who falls in love with a mortal woman as the two float across the surrealist landscapes of Dalí’s paintings. Dalí described the film as “A magical display of the problem of life in the labyrinth of time.” Disney called it “A simple story about a young girl in search of true love.” Must have been quite the project to work on... The amazing thing is the project remained a secret for over 5 years, only seeing the light of day in 1999 when Walt Disney’s nephew, Roy E. Disney, accidentally stumbled upon it while working on Fantasia 2000. In 2003, it was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film. Can't believe it didn't win. Even compared to Pixar, this is an amazing piece of animation!!!
