A journey through the astonishing Desert Wetlands of Central Australia. One of only two remaining wild desert river systems left on Earth, its value is beyond precious. Filmed over several years, this film explores the natural cycles of life and death in this land of boom or bust. The importance of the Desert Wetlands on a global scale cannot be overstated. It is not well known however even among those that live in bordering regions. This film attempts to show the natural wonder of an environment that is globally almost gone. We still can save Australia’s Desert Rivers, but there is little time left.

"Colorado's Moose" is an all encompassing tale of the reintroduction of moose to Colorado. Once transient to the state, efforts were made in the late 1970s to return the Shiras Moose to Colorado's mountainous landscape. The species success has provided new tourism opportunities for wildlife watchers and sportsmen alike. Still a rare animal to see in the wilderness, wildlife managers remain responsible for managing sustainable moose populations and striking a balance between the public, ranchers, and wildlife who all depend on the land for survival. The film combines captivating stories from biologists, wildlife managers, a photographer, hunters and ranchers with stunning footage of moose and majestic scenic of the Colorado Rockies in this tremendous story for wildlife management.
Josh Aronson is a director and producer, known for Sound and Fury (2000), To Be of Service (2019) and The Opposite Sex: Rene's Story (2004).
TO BE OF SERVICE is a feature-length documentary film about war veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) who are paired with a service dog to help them regain their lives.
Returning home for these vets is often plagued with depression and a wrenching disconnect from the world they once inhabited.
Family, old friends and jobs seem foreign, and newly returned warriors struggle to function and return to a normal civilian life.
Service dogs offer a miraculous ray of hope in helping them come back to an independent, feeling life. The viewer learns it is the fragile life of young warriors, changed forever by combat that is the true cost of war.
