However you reacted to Marley & Me, prepare to be hit by a crashing wave of emotion.

Denali is a tribute, a love letter, a farewell between two best friends; they have both been ravaged by cancer, but only one has survived it.

As a message of loyalty and love, of celebrating life and reliving happy memories, Denali is a powerful and poignant piece filled with humour as a remedy for anger and despair.

Shot simply with sun-dappled video interspersed with photos, this is a beautifully created monument to the unbreakable bond, both personal and universal, between one man and his dog.
