FILM: "5 BROKEN CAMERAS"
(90 min.Emad Burnat and Guy Davidi, 2011)
With AMIN ODEH, Founder of Voices of Palestine and Co-founder of the Arab American Community Coalition
An extraordinary work of both cinematic and political activism which is a deeply personal, first-hand account of non-violent resistance in Bil'in, a West Bank village threatened by encroaching Israeli settlements. Shot by a Palestinian farmer and filmmaker Emad Burnat who for five years records his village's turmoil as olive trees are bulldozed, protests intensify and lives are lost.
Structured in chapters around the destruction of each one of Burnat’s cameras, the filmmakers’ collaboration follows one family’s evolution over five years of village upheaval. Burnat watches from behind the lens in this profound cinematic diary and unparalleled record of life in the West Bank.
Join us following the film for a facilitated converstion with Amin Odeh!
