Madison, N.J. (January 27, 2012) –The award-winning documentary, “Aglow-Under the Radar: Chojnowski,” directed by Howard Libov, an assistant dean and film professor at Fairleigh Dickinson University will be screened at the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival on Saturday, February 25, 2012 at 3:30 p.m.
“Aglow” takes a look at the art of Paul Chojnowski, the nation’s most renowned practitioner of the art of drawing with fire. Chojnowski’s drawing techniques include scorching paper with a blowtorch to craft unique cityscapes and intricately detailed drawings. The trailer for “Aglow” is available on YouTube. “Aglow” recently won the Best Short Film award at the Atlanta International Documentary Film Festival (DocuFest Atlanta).
“Aglow” is the second film in a series by Libov called “Under the Radar.” Each film in the series follows the life of a contemporary working artist in the USA that is recognized in their field, but is not considered to be a celebrity.
Libov, resident of Ridgewood, N.J., is an accomplished filmmaker and award-winning director, as well as a professor of film at FDU and the Assistant Dean of FDU’s Becton College of Arts and Sciences. Libov has won numerous awards at film festivals all over the world including WorldFest International Independent Film Festival in Houston, T.X., where his feature film, “Favorite Son”, received a Gold Remi Award in Drama.
Now in its 9th year, The Big Sky Documentary Film Festival has become the largest cinema event in Montana and the premiere venue for non-fiction film in the American West. The festival presents an average of 125 documentary films annually at the historic Wilma Theater in Missoula, MT.
