Chinese-Korean border topic of BYU lecture Sept. 16

Documentary film producer and director Dodge Billingsley will visit Brigham Young University to present a free lecture, “Life Along China’s Korean Border” Wednesday, Sept. 16, at noon in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

Billingsley began covering war in 1993, eventually founding Combat Films and Research in 1997. He has since spent much of his time documenting global hotspots including Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Chechnya, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Western China and Iraq, splitting his time among producing documentaries, writing and lecturing.

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." He is a past recipient of the MacArthur Foundation’s Regional Security Travel Grant for his work in Abkhazia.

Billingsley received a bachelor’s degree in history from Columbia University and a master’s degree in war studies from King’s College Department of War Studies in London. He has lectured on various security-related topics for the U.S. government and numerous academic institutes in the U.S. and abroad.
