"Global Car" documentary to be featured at BYU lecture Nov. 25

Dodge Billingsley, documentary film producer and director, will present a Brigham Young University David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies lecture, “Making of ‘Global Car’: The Director’s Perspective,” Wednesday, Feb. 25, at noon in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

“Global Car” is the most recent film in the “Beyond the Border” series, films of international scope that Billingsley has been producing for the David M. Kennedy Center.

Billingsley began covering war in 1993, eventually founding Combat Films and Research in 1997. He has spent time documenting global hotspots including South Ossetia, Chechnya, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq. He is currently co-writing a book and documentary on the operation commissioned by the U.S. Army’s Foreign Military Studies Office.

A frequent contributor to various defense and security-related journals, he has a recent article, “Weaponizing the Story: Chechen and Russian Media Operations 1994 to the Present,” that will appear in the spring issue of the “Harriman Review.”

This lecture will be archived online. For more information on events sponsored by the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies, see the calendar online at kennedy.byu.edu. For more information about the lecture, contact Lee Simons at (801) 422-2652.
