5 Broken Cameras
  • February 16, 2013 - 2:00pm

5 Broken Cameras, an award-winning new documentary, tells the story of a Palestinian farmer who obtained a video camera to record his son's childhood, but ended up documenting the growth of the resistance movement in the West Bank village of Bil'in. The film shows the non-violent tactics used by residents of Bil'in as they join with international and Israeli activists to protest the wall's construction. Shot almost entirely by Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat, who bought his first camera in 2005 to record the birth of his youngest son, the footage was later given to Israeli co-director Guy David to edit.
