USA | 1940 | COLOR | DCP | 126' | ENGLISH

A celebration for children and cool adults, an intricate experiment, a glorious, unique moment for the American cinema! ‘Fantasia’ is the film that Walt Disney envisioned as a stories fantasy wrapped in classical music, a film legend, a proper phantasmagoria of tone colors and ageless childlike enthusiasm.

But above all, for those who grew up with it, this film is the splendid moment when the children’s soul and gaze are trained to beauty. You hope and beg that such a lucky training, especially in these times, will not end in today’s generations, you consider the honour of its screening, you feel the importance of the 79 years that make it such a great part of film history and our lives.
