In 1945 Jack Warner hosted a party where Walt Disney and Salvador Dali first met. The two became fast friends, deciding to collaborate on a short film. Dali worked with Disney’s artistic director John Hench for three months before funding for the project dissipated. The short film entitled Destino, named after a Spanish ballad, sat in a warehouse until 1999 when Roy Disney, Walt’s nephew, unearthed the story boards. Roy brought Disney’s Studios France on board to complete the project, released in 2003. A number of Destino proofs have since been released, one of which hangs in the gallery here at Baterbys.
