5 Broken Cameras

introduced by Prof Ross Brann (Near Eastern Studies) who will also lead a post-screening discussion

Emad Burnat, Guy Davidi

Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat got his first camera when his youngest son was born in the village of Bil'in, where the locals began a series of non-violent protests against a separation barrier being built. Burnat shot for five years, eventually turning the footage over to Israeli co-director Guy Davidi, who structured the film around the violent destruction of each of Burnat’s cameras. “Both a moving first-person essay and an artful exercise in political advocacy, 5 Broken Cameras is about the experience of West Bank protests from the inside.” (Globe and Mail, Toronto) In Hebrew and Arabic.
