Destino is a surreal animation, for which the production originally commenced in 1948. It loosely follows the fate of Chronos, the Greek God of time, who tragically falls in love with a mortal woman. A collaboration between Walt Disney Studios and Salvador Dali, it was originally storyboarded by the painter alongside John Hench, who was a studio artist at Disney for more than 60 years. Unfortunately, the project was shelved due to financial turmoil during World War II, and there it remained until the old footage was rediscovered amidst the making of Fantasia 2000. Dominique Monfréy of the Parisian Disney department was charged with the direction of the short film, and in 2003, 48 years after it’s conceptual birth, Destino was finally released.
