5 BROKEN CAMERAS (15)

Date Time
Thurs 13th December 7.45pm

Dir. Emad Burnat & Guy Davidi, Occupied Palestinian Territory/Israel/France/Netherlands, 2011, 94 mins, subtitles

An extraordinary work of both cinematic and political activism, 5 Broken Cameras is a deeply personal, first-hand account of non-violent resistance in a West Bank village threatened by encroaching Israeli settlements. Shot almost entirely by Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat, 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.
