Bosnia-Herzegovina conflict topic for BYU lecture Dec. 8

Dodge Billingsley, a combat documentary film producer and director, will be speaking Wednesday, Dec. 8, at noon in 238 Herald R. Clark Building at Brigham Young University.

Billingsley, whose lecture is sponsored by the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies, will speak about “The Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina: From the Dayton Accords to Helmand Province.”

A widely recognized military documenter, Billingsley began covering war in 1993 and eventually founded Combat Films and Research in 1997. Billingsley has since spent much of his time documenting numerous global hotspots including Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Chechnya, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Western China and Iraq, splitting his time between producing documentaries, writing and lecturing. Beyond the Border is a series of films of international scope produced for the David M. Kennedy Center that began airing in fall 2004 and spring 2005 (see beyondtheborder.org).

He is co-writing a book and documentary on the operation commissioned by the U.S. Army’s Foreign Military Studies Office. Billingsley also co-wrote, produced and directed “Immortal Fortress: A Look Inside Chechnya’s Warrior Culture,” a film that took him deep into the dangerous war-torn breakaway region of Chechnya to detail the insurgent perspective.

The lecture will be archived at kennedy.byu.edu/archive. For more information, contact Lee Simons at (801) 422-2652 or lee_simons@byu.edu. For more information about Dodge Billingsley and his films, visit www.combatfilms.com/.
