Ben Moon and his dog Denali were inseparable.
For 14 years, they’ve spent their life together. It all began at an animal shelter when Moon was 24, and continued on the road while Moon was starting out as a photographer.
When Moon was diagnosed with colorectal cancer, Denali stayed by his side at the hospital room. After recovering, they continued their travels. Moon’s career took them places, they made many beautiful memories together.
Then, the duo was hit with another blow. Denali had cancer.
Moon didn’t want him to suffer, and brought him back to all their favourite places.
This short film was made in the last month they spent together.
As the film’s tagline reads: “There’s no easy way to say goodbye to a friend, especially when they’ve supported you through your darkest times.”
Ben Moon‘s film premiered at the 5Point Film Festival, winning the Best of Festival and People’s Choice awards.
