Herald News: Temples of Arts – Hungarian National Theaters – Story of Salvador Dali’s path to surrealism.

Coming up at Hungarian National Theaters from December 16 the latest episode in the series of educational workshops on Temples of Art, which focuses on the period from the birth of Salvador Dali to his accession to the surrealist movement from 1904 to 1929.
The film, made with the support and professional assistance of the Gala-Salvador Dali Foundation, presents unprecedented archival documents and footage of the youth of the master of surrealism, including details of Dali’s personal diary and recollections of contemporary interviews. Thanks to these, the painter’s youth emerges from a new perspective, which was undoubtedly greatly influenced by his brother’s infant death and his early insight into art history.
Dali first studied art at his hometown of Figueres and later in Madrid, where he met such influential personalities in the art world as Federico García Lorca
and Luis Buñuel. He first traveled to Paris as a young adult and then moved there shortly, where he met Miro, Picasso, and the surrealist group, which he joined in 1929.
The film explores the transformation of Dali’s art, following the process as his creative style shifted from the classical to the avant-garde in the early years of his career upon the influences he experienced. It shows how the inimitable vision and distinctive creative style that has now become an integral part of universal art has evolved.
The premier of David Pujol, who also recorded the previous Dali film – „In the Footsteps of Immortality” – released in 2018, will be screened on December, 17 at the Urania National Film Theater, where art historian Kata Bodor, curator of the University of Fine Arts

In addition to Urania National Theater the film will be screened also at several other locations throughout the country:  Debrecen, Szolnok, Szombathely, Pécs, Miskolc and Székesfehérvár.

The exclusive accompanying film for the art history documentary is the special animated short film Destino (Doom), which was co-produced by Salvador Dali and Walt Disney in 1945, but was interrupted by World War II and was not completed until 2003 by Disney Studio animators Roy. E. Disney – initiated by Walt Disney’s nephew. The end result is a wonderful short film about an unfulfilled love between a mortal girl and Kronos, the god of time, created with almost entirely traditional animation, in which a typical Disney female figure dances the story within a surreal setting full of countless song motifs.

The six-minute work, based on original drawings and storyboards, was first screened at the world’s largest animated film festival, Annecy, France, and was nominated for an Oscar in the Best Animated Short Film category in 2004.
