Three Desert Wildflower Films together on One DVD!

Season of the Sand Blossoms (Gold Medal Award Winner for Nature and Wildlife, 2006 Houston Film Festival) and Desert Gold (an official selection of the 2006 Napa-Sonoma Wine Country Film Festival and 2006 Vermont International Film Festival) capture that magical time when wildflowers bloom in an immense and little-appreciated land.

Season of the Sand Blossoms is a spectacular film set to music with sweeping views, and delicate close-ups, which puts viewers eye level with the flowers, butterflies, birds and wildlife that thrive during the desertÂ’s brief, abundant Spring. The DVD includes an alternative version of the film which has subtitles that identify the flowers and animals shown.

Deserts are often considered wastelands. The casual traveler speeds through them and sees little to dispute this notion. In reality, deserts are waiting for the right conditions to burst forth and reveal a spectacular world of color and life. Desert Gold travels through the Southwest to tell the desert wildflowers' life story. Scientists and Native American tradition-keepers explain how and why the desert blooms and how desert plants can survive decades of drought yet still know when to flower. Desert Gold traces the relationships among flowers, insects, birds and mammals as partners in a web of life that reaches far beyond the desert and explores the implications of human incursion on these magnificent, yet fragile lands. The role of wildflowers in the lives and traditions of Native Americans is featured.
