5 BROKEN CAMERAS

2012 Alumni

Expected to Attend: Michael Moore

This deeply personal, first-hand account of non-violent resistance was shot almost entirely by Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat in a West Bank village threatened by encroaching Israeli settlements. Burnat’s footage was turned into a galvanizing cinematic experience in collaboration with co-director Guy Davidi. Structured around the violent destruction of a succession of Burnat’s video cameras, the film follows one family’s evolution over five years of village turmoil. “I feel like the camera protects me,” Burnat says, “but it’s an illusion.” Courtesy of Kino Lorber.
