Backpack Video in the Dark

05.In the dark

MANAGUA, Nicaragua, 12 December 2015 — On the last day of our Backpack Video Journalism Workshop, we lost power because of maintenance work on the electrical system at the venue where the event was held. Despite numerous challenges during the four-day event, every one of the participants managed to produce a respectable video. I’m so very proud of them all. In this photo, participants screen their final projects on their laptops — before the computers run out of power.
