A little treat this morning courtesy one of this years recent cannabis cup judges, a video that combines something I love with something I don’t…My favorite artist Salvador Dali, and something I loathe, Disney,  Dali’s Destino.

 

The film tells the story of Chronos, the personification of time and the inability to realize his desire to love for a mortal. The scenes blend a series of surreal paintings of Dali with dancing and metamorphosis. The target production began in 1945, 58 years before its completion and was a collaboration between Walt Disney and the Spanish surrealist painter, Salvador Dalí. Salvador Dali and Walt Disney Destiny was produced by Dali and John Hench for 8 months between 1945 and 1946.

The plot of the film was described by. Dalí as “A magical display of the problem of life in the labyrinth of time.”
Walt Disney said it was “A simple story about a young girl in search of true love.”

Whatever, its beautiful and an absolute delight for any fan of early animation or Salvador Dali.  If you aren’t familiar with Dali, take a second to take a look.
