Backpack Video Journalist at Tbilisi Theater

TBILISI, Georgia, 25 September 2013 — One of the participants in my Backpack Video Journalism Workshop, Hasmik Harutyunyan, poses with the make-up artist of the Armenian Theater in Tbilisi. He is one of a handful of people trying to keep alive the tradition of the 150-year-old structure, which has been awaiting reconstruction now for a number of years. Sponsored by the Thomson Reuters Foundation, I’m in Tbilisi teaching journalists from across the region how to make documentaries for television and the Internet. I have terrific students.
