Growing up I had a Brittany Spaniel that followed me everywhere. She was my adventure partner and my guide, leading me to unknown trails and always keeping an eye on me. When she died I was torn apart. I cried for days. There is something special about the bond you make with furry friends.
Denali is the story of the relationship between photographer Ben Moon and his beloved dog, Denali. This short film is about friendship, loss and the beautiful fight for life.
A true collaboration between director Ben Knight, producer Ben Moon and cinematographer Skip Armstrong, Denali celebrates the human-dog bond and illuminates the incredible resilience we can conjure up with the help of friends. The short film premiered at 5Point Film Festival, winning both Best of Festival and People’s Choice, was an official selection at Telluride Mountainfilm, and has received a Vimeo Staff Pick.
Filmmaker Ben Moon’s tribute to his dog Denali is truly heartwarming and heart wrenching.
