Uplifting human story

David Hanney

Beautiful and poetic surfing movie that reflects on mortality - of both people and animals. Affecting. This will make you cry.

Paul Hodgson Music Judge

This is the most heart wrenching film a based on a surface relationship with his dog. It is a must watch and is in my 2016 top 5.

Ed Birch Director of Salt-Street productions

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.
