WorldView funded film ‘5 Broken Cameras’ continues on its world wide success as it comes to the UK, with numerous upcoming screenings across the country.
5 Broken Cameras, a film from Emad Burnat and Guy Davidi tells the story of Palestinian villager and self-taught cameraman Emad. When his fourth son, Gibreel, is born in 2005, Emad gets his first camera. At the same time in his village of Bil’in, a separation barrier is being built and the villagers begin to resist this decision.For the next years, Burnat films this non-violent struggle, which is lead by two of his best friends, while at the same time recording the growth of his son. Very soon, these events begin to affect his family and his own life. Daily arrests, violent attacks, bulldozers knocking down olive trees, the loss of life and night raids in the village scare his family. His friends, brothers and even himself are either shot or arrested. One camera after another used to document these events is shot or smashed. Each camera unfolds a part of history and his story.
