5 BROKEN CAMERAS Directors: Emad Burnat and Guy Davidi
Sundance award winner 2012 5 BROKEN CAMERAS made by a Palestinian and Israeli tells the story of how an amateur photographer bought a video camera to document his family and over the course of five years records the plight of Palestinians as the Israeli government moves settlers on to the land held traditionally by Palestinians. He has to use five different video cameras each subsequently damaged by bullets or rocks. One ordinary family and their friends in a small village are the subject of this deeply moving documentary. When the Sundance award was announced both filmmakers took the stage and between them held the coveted award. Together they give visual hope for the future. When the politics of the grand fathers on both sides looses it sway, hope surfaces !
