Film Screening: 5 Broken Cameras
06 Jul 2013 | Saturday 6:45pm to 9:00pm
An extraordinary work of both cinematic and political activism, ‘5 Broken Cameras’ is a deeply personal, first-hand account of non-violent resistance in Bil’in, a West Bank village threatened by encroaching Israeli settlements.
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 Davidi to edit. Structured around the violent destruction of each one of Burnat’s cameras, the filmmakers’ collaboration follows one family’s evolution over five years of village turmoil. The film won a 2012 Sundance Film Festival award and was nominated for a 2012 Academy Award.
