“Abkhazia: Untold War Story” subject of BYU lecture Feb. 6

Dodge Billingsley will offer a Global Awareness Lecture on “Abkhazia: Untold War Story” Wednesday, Feb. 6 at noon in 238 of the Herald R. Clark Building at Brigham Young University.

Billingsley started covering war in 1993 and eventually founded Combat Films and Research in 1997. Much of his time has been spent documenting global hotspots including Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Chechnya, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Western China and Iraq.

He was a finalist for the Rory Peck award for Best Picture for his film, “Virgin Soldiers,” in 2003 and won the award as well as the Royal Television Society award for Best Picture in 2002 for his film, “House of War.” Billingsley also co-wrote, produced and directed “Immortal Fortress: A Look Inside Chechnya’s Warrior Culture,” and has also produced many programs for the Discovery and History Channels. He is a recipient of the MacArthur Foundation’s Regional Security Travel Grant, and has lectured on various security-related topics for the U.S. Army, Air Force and Navy as well as at several universities.

This lecture will be archived online. For more information on David M. Kennedy Center events, see the calendar online at kennedy.byu.edu.
