Five Broken Cameras

Published April 15, 2014

An Oscar-nominated documentary based on a Palestinian farmer’s video diary of the turmoil in his West Bank village of Bil’in. Emad Burnat bought his first camera in 2005 to record the birth of his fourth son, the same year that an Israeli separation barrier was being built. Over a period of five years, Burnat records the villagers’ non-violent resistance to the construction of “The Separation Wall” and the building of more Israeli settlements. The footage was given to Israeli director Guy Davidi, who helped transform it into a moving documentary.

Duration: 1 hour, 30 minutes
