5 Broken Cameras by Emad Burnat and Guy Davidi (2011, 90 min.). An extraordinary work of both cinematic and political activism, 5 Broken Cameras offers a first-hand account of nonviolent resistance in the West Bank town of Bil’in. Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat chronicles the conflict over the construction of a separation barrier in the village—and in the process, his “five broken cameras” are destroyed by the villagers’ demonstrations. “A chronicle of protest and endurance, punctuated by . . . tiny glimmers of hope” (The New York Times). Winner of the World Documentary Directing Award at Sundance 2012.
