5 BROKEN CAMERAS SAT 20 OCT @ ICA (LONDON)

★★★★★ ‘A hugely powerful, moving study…The year’s best home movie’ Total Film

5 BROKEN CAMERAS
Dir. Emad Burnat/Guy Davidi,
Occupied Palestinian Territory/Israel/France/Netherlands, 2011, 94 mins

At the birth of his son Gabreel, Emad Burnat is given his first movie camera and begins recording both Gabreel’s childhood and the conflict growing around them.

Filmed from the perspective of a Palestinian farm laborer, 5 Broken Cameras was shot using six different video cameras – five of which were destroyed in the process of documenting Emad’s family’s life as well as Palestinian and International resistance to Israeli appropriation of land and occupation.

Director Q&A – Saturday 20 October, 3:15pm
There is a special Q&A with Guy Davidi, co-director of the film on Saturday 20 October after the 3:15pm screening. The Q&A is chaired by Áine O’Brien, co-director of Counterpoints Arts, which is a hub for creative projects by and about migrants and refugees. In addition to Platforma, its projects include Refugee Week and the Simple Acts campaign.
