5 Broken Cameras
Amy Goodman of “Democracy Now” writes on 2.21.13 about how this film will make history at the Academy Awards ceremony as the first-ever nomination of a feature documentary made by a Palestinian. “5 Broken Cameras” was filmed and directed by Emad Burnat, a resident of the occupied Palestinian West Bank town of Bil’in, along with his Israeli filmmaking partner Guy Davidi. A deeply personal account of life and nonviolent resistance in Bil’in, a West Bank village surrounded by Israeli settlements.
