Backpack Documentary Expedition Filmmaker Publishes Nicaragua Video

WASHINGTON, DC, 23 July 2011 — Martha Dodge, a participant in the recent Backpack Documentary Expedition: Nicaragua, has published her film, “A House for Teresa.” As I wrote to Martha after she posted it on the Internet, the film is a testament to her “talent, hard work and kind heart.” You can watch it on Vimeo. In the picture above, Turner Bailey, one of 32 volunteers associated with the New York-based NGO Bridges to Community, muscles a bucket of concrete while helping to build a house for one of Nicaragua’s materially poor in the town of Ticuantepe.
