Documentary film producer to discuss Afghanistan, Iraq at BYU Dec. 12

Documentary film producer Dodge Billingsley will present a Global Awareness Lecture on “Force Projection or Force Protection: A New Mission Objective for Afghanistan and Iraq” at Brigham Young University on Wednesday, Dec. 12, at noon in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

Billingsley founded Combat Films and Research in 1997 and has since documented many security-related topics and covered conflicts worldwide.

In 2002, his film “House of War,” which documented the battle for Qala Jangi fortress in Afghanistan, won the Rory Peck and the Royal Television Society awards for Best Feature.

He produced a series of five films and a panel discussion for the Kennedy Center called “Beyond the Border.” The latest installment in the series, “Global Car,” will be released this fall. He has also produced television series for the Discovery Channel and the History Channel.

Billingsley has been a guest lecturer for the U.S. Army and Navy, New York Military Association and numerous academic institutes. He has also written extensively for various defense- and security-related journals.

He received a bachelor’s in history from Columbia University and a master’s in war studies from King’s College Department of War Studies in London. While in London, he also co-founded and edited the “War Studies Journal.”

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