|Academy award nominated documentary on a Palestinian farmer's chronicle of his nonviolent resistance to the actions of the Israeli army|
Five Broken Cameras (Emad Burnat, Guy David, Palestine, 2011; 90 min.) A first-hand account of non-violent resistance in Bil'in, a West Bank village threatened by encroaching Israeli settlements. The documentary was shot almost entirely by Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat, who bought his first camera in 2005 to record the birth of his youngest son. In 2009 Israeli co-director Guy Davidi joined on to create the film. Structured around the destruction of Burnat's cameras, the filmmakers' collaboration follows one family's evolution over five years of turmoil.
