Documentaries

Thomas Kolicko, owner/founder of Traverse Image, a production company based out of Denver, is giving the first glimpse of their next documentary, The Whiskey Film. Kolicko is known for directing, Crafting a Nation, a film highlighting microbreweries across the country, with a distinct nod to Colorado’s contribution.

My heroes haven’t always been cowboys, but after moving to Colorado and getting to know a choice few, that changed. I was lucky as a journalist to spend time with Duke Phillips of Chico Basin Ranch, south of Colorado Springs, and witness his dedication to responsible land management and conservation. And I was privileged as a reporter back in the 1990s to hear Kirk Hanna explain to a room full of environmentalists how ranchers like him could help them achieve their goals if they’d just put aside their stereotypes and prejudices.
