French and Spanish Surrealist Cinema Exhibition - October 5-30, 2015
The current exhibition at the Kimura Gallery, French and Spanish Surrealist Cinema, focuses on five surrealist films that have their roots in "classic" surrealist cinema and later developments. Included in this screening is the collaborative effort of Salvador Dalì and Walt Disney, Destino, a short animation using Dalì's imagery as the source for the production. It was not realized in 1946 but was finally reconstituted and released in 2003.
