Destino - A Dali/Disney Production

Apparently, in the 1940s, surrealist artist Salvador Dali teamed up with Disney to create an animated film titled Destino. The film was not completed until 2003. Dali has always been a personal favourite of mine, and so it is a pleasure to see his paintings in motion. If you pay attention, you can often spot specific Dali paintings incorporated into the animation. Persistence of Memory (commonly referred to as "Melting Clocks") makes a small appearance - see if you can spot it!
