5 Broken Cameras - Movie

Everyone is talking about the fantastic documentary, 5 Broken Cameras. If you haven’t seen it yet, come to everyone’s favorite cultural institution to check it out! The Arab American National Museum is proud to show the gripping, most-talked about documentary, 5 Broken Cameras. The film will be shown, Friday, April 19th at 7:30pm.
The film follows Emad Burnat, a Palestinian farmer who follows one family's evolution over five years of conflict in their village. The film is structured in chapters as each of his cameras is destroyed. He follows how the lives of this family is changed forever through the destruction of family history, protests, and lost lives. This movie is an unparalleled record of life in the West Bank.

      It was good, not a lot of folks showed up unfortunately. It was done well. I had a lot of questions/observations but the discussion after was mostly about how we here in the US should or shouldn't help and the fact that there seems to be an issue with the clash of cultures in the sense of the Euro-style way of life that the Israelis have vs the old school Arab style of living on the land hence the settlement encroachments. I think we should direct our monies to organizations that help integrate those societies, rather than build another wall/fence. The IDF seemed to instigate half the violence as well. And there was a lack of women involved on the Palestinian side, but of course that's a cultural thing, but too much testosterone doesn't help! Interesting documentary nonetheless. Right now there's also an Israeli Journalist's perspective of the same type of thing and an issue within Israel (secular vs religious) going on.
