One of my only frustrations during our trip to San Francisco a few weeks ago was to know that I would miss the screening of Ted Thomas and Kuniko Ukubo's Walt & El Grupo in Madrid. I still have not seen this documentary, which is a real shame.
In the same animation festival (Animadrid) where the screening happened, another documentary was also presented about Walt, which I missed without any second thoughts: Disney a Traves del Espejo (Disney Through the Mirror) by Eduardo Soler, about the infamous (and obviously totally absurd) rumor of Walt's birth in Mojacar, Spain.
This rumor, born thanks to Franco and the Spanish magazine Primer Plano, is unfortunately still alive and, as every stupid and false rumor, is bound to survive us all. They say in French "Calumny, calumny, something will always stick." Too true for our own good.
