A documentary on a Palestinian farmer's chronicle of his nonviolent resistance to the actions of the Israeli army.
5 Broken Cameras (Guy Davidi and Emad Burnat | 90 min.)
When his son Gibreel is born, Emad, a Palestinian villager, gets his first camera. In his village of Bil'in, a separation barrier is being built on the villagers' lands to which the villagers begin to resist. Throughout the years, Emad films the struggle led by two of his friends while simultaneously filming his son growing up. Very soon this struggle affects his life on a more personal level. Daily arrests and night raids scare his family; his friends, brothers.. One camera after another is shot or smashed and with each camera a part of Emad's story unfolds.
