5 Broken Cameras
5604 Manor Road, Austin
The Interfaith Community for Palestinian Rights (ICPR) will show the film
5 Broken Cameras followed by a brief panel presentation and discussion afterward.
The film is an Academy Award nominee for best documentary feature. An extraordinary work of both cinematic and political activism, it is a deeply personal, first-hand account of non-violence in Bilin, a West Bank village threatened by encroaching Israeli settlements. Shot almost entirely by Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat, who bought his first camera in 2005 to record the birth of his youngest son, the footage was turned into a galvanizing cinematic experience by co-directors Guy Davidi and Burnat.
Structured around the violent destruction of a succession of Burnats video cameras, the film follows one familys evolution over five years of village turmoil as olive trees are bulldozed, protests intensify, and lives are lost.
