5 Broken Cameras

Emad, a Palestinian farmer, got himself a camera when his fourth son was born. The very same day saw the beginning of the occupation of land intended for the construction of a large Israeli settlement in the village of Bil’in in Ramallah. Emad filmed unarmed villagers’ attempts to protest peacefully against the loss of the land that provided them with a living, while his cameras were destroyed one after the other by the bullets of Israeli soldiers or Jewish settlers. Over the years, tensions escalate and his neighbours are arrested and killed. Emad also is arrested and later seriously injured, while his wife pressures him to halt the shooting that is putting their family in danger. He created a personal chronicle of five years of resistance in a film that depicts the military methods used against a civilian population. It shows injustice and the gradual loss of hope, as well as raises questions about the conditions under which Palestinian children grow up. This documentary by Emad Burnat, a Palestinian and Guy Davidi, an Israeli, took a the Public Broadcaster Audience Award and the Special Jury Award at Amsterdam’s IDFA festival.
