Five Broken cameras

Director : Emad Burnat & Guy Davidi


In his village, Bil’in in Gaza, on the birth of his fourth son, Emad Burnat tries out his first camera. Filming political events and family intimacy in equal parts, Emad Burnat provides an insider vision of the spirit of resistance. These sometimes very violent images, shot over five years, relate events in the colonised territory and the escalation of repression. Damaged during non-violent demonstrations in Bil’in, cameras are the soldiers’ favourite targets, but also act as shields for Emad. In an increasingly concentric circle, death prowls around those who ‘film to heal’.
