The Sonoran Desert is alive with beauty, and this stunning film captures the changes over the seasons with views of its remarkable plants and animals. Discover 182 species of plants and animals in this first-of-its-kind presentation of the Sonoran Desert as it changes over the course of a full year.
“Desert Dreams” blends HD video footage and time-lapse imagery captured over four years with stills from the filmmaker’s photographic archive compiled over three decades to chronicle five seasons: Dry Summer, Wet Summer, Autumn, Winter, and Spring.
The supporting soundtrack combines natural sounds with a kaleidoscope of flute and percussion vignettes performed by world-class musician Gary Stroutsos, featuring 29 musical instruments with “earth tones” to create a pictorial and musical tapestry without narration or people.
