As the first-ever Palestinian film nominated for an Academy Award® for best documentary feature, the critically acclaimed “5 Broken Cameras” is a deeply personal, first-hand account of life and non-violent resistance in Bil’in, a West Bank village surrounded by Israeli settlements. The film was co-directed by Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat who purchased his first camera in 2005 to record the birth of his youngest son, Gibreel, and Israeli filmmaker Guy Davidi. It follows the Burnat family’s evolution over five years of village upheaval. A Palestinian-Israeli-French co-production. In Hebrew and Arabic, with English subtitles. (2011, 90 minutes)
