SANDRA GLUSCHANKOFF Argentinian

I was born and raised in Argentina. My mother was born in a refugee camp in Italy, my grandparents Romanians Jews, and World War Two survivors. From my father’s side, the flavor of the Middle East – a mixture of the legendary traditions and art of Zafed, Israel and the culture of the Switzerland of the Middle East, Lebanon.

Different languages, colors and food were my everyday. So, was silence and fear. My childhood happened during the years of the dirty war, the military regime. I was extremely fortunate to have the best teachers, who would risk their lives by closing the classrooms doors in order to protect us from the truth of what was happening out there.

By the time I was seventeen I moved to Israel for a year to enhance my education in, Judaic Studies and Hebrew Teaching. Back in Argentina I became the first woman in my family to attend a University. I enrolled in psychology and anthropology. Needless to say, I wanted to explore everything that there was to know about human nature, relationships and language.

In 1991 I moved to the U.S. A new culture and language were just another challenge to conquer, but were made easier through my love of reading and writing. Today, I have seven full-length screenplays completed and a couple of projects in development, including “Voices from the Tomato Fields,” a semifinalist in the Write Movies International Screenplay Contest. I am also a judge for the Brass Brad Screenwriting Mentorship Award and I also provide script consulting services.

I am a wife and young mother of two beautiful teenage boys and enjoy the challenges of shaping their character and values in the 21st Century.
