'''''15.000 Dibujos''''' (also known as '''''15 Mil Dibujos''''', meaning '''15.000 Drawings''') is a Chilean animated feature film by Jaime Escudero and Juan Carlos Trupp made between 1937 and 1942. The film details the life of Copuchita the Condor and his friends: a Mapuche puma named Manihuel, a rooster dressed up as a Chilean huaso named Ño Benhaiga, and Clarita, a young woman.
The movie was funded by friends and families of the directors. They also got the support of CORFO: Corporación de Fomento de la Producción (a production development corporation) and Corporación Chilena del Salitre. This film was created using rudimentary animation techniques and was made in the directors' workshop in Lira with Marcoleta in Downtown Santiago.
In 1941, during a Disney goodwill tour in South America (as part of the Good Neighbor Policy), Walt Disney visited Chile and saw the progress of the film. He was amazed by their simple animation techniques, and he encouraged both filmmakers to continue their project. This gave them the encouragement to finish it as a feature-length film.
''15.000 Dibujos'' finally premiered in 1942. Despite being critically acclaimed on its own, primarily because it was the first Chilean animated feature film, it was overshadowed by other animated films like ''Fantasia'' and ''Pinocchio''. After this, Carlos Trupp retrieved a copy of the film and, since then, the movie has never been seen in its entirety.
In the late 1950s, filmmaker Edmundo Urrutia retrieved a fragment of the film and incorporated it in his documentary ''Recordando''. This fragment was uploaded to YouTube by Kylie Trupp, the granddaughter of Carlos Trupp. In 2001, there were plans to restore the film, but they haven't yet been confirmed.
