A New Generation of Filmmakers Who Rock

AKHALTSIKHE, Georgia, 21 May 2014 – These are a few of the graduates of my first Backpack Journalism Workshop in Georgia. At the invitation of the U.S. Embassy in Tbilisi, I’m here for two weeks conducting a series of workshops, presentations and encounters with professional, backpack and citizen journalists and filmmakers – and those aspiring to be any of the above. So far it’s been a great experience.

The young woman on the far right is my interpreter.
