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.
