Film Artist, J. Gluckstern
J. Gluckstern's films and film-related works have been shown in Korea, Mexico and throughout the United States. He's received numerous grants, awards and commissions, among them a professional development fellowship from the Robert Flaherty Film Seminar in 2006, and he's taught film production at the University of Colorado-Boulder since 1999. He's also been an arts journalist since the late 1980s, writing about film and art for many regional and national publications, and received his MFA in media from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2007. For the ditch project, Gluckstern will be producing a series of short videos designed to both educate the public about the extensive history of the ditch system in the region and reveal some of the ephemeral and unique beauty the ditches contribute to the everyday environment of the city of Boulder and its surroundings.
