A group of artists, writers, and musicians working for the Walt Disney Studio leave Hollywood and board an airplane bound for South America. Their impressions inspire them to produce a series of four animated films, which are then shown.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
The last bit of the movie has some beautiful animation, however the rest of it is a boring mess of a film that is some weird cross between a bad social studies class, Disney animator's vacation slides, and vague 1940s racism. Also 1940s Donald was the least understandable Donald of them all.
Together with Los Three Caballeros it's interesting to see the Good Neighbor Policy being put into plan.... On one hand, it's a tourist brochure, on the other, it's probably the only depiction of Latin America that the United States got. Parts of the film were banned in certain places because of how they portrayed various countries. Most of the images were sexy women or primitive children.
