FILM: 5 Broken Cameras

If you only see one film this year that allows you to witness the nature of the occupation and the bravery of collective resistance in Palestine - let it be this one.

 

Catastrophe Club presents: 5 Broken Cameras The Oscar-nominated film about the Palestinian struggle Directed by Emad Burnat and Guy Davidi

 

Followed by a discussion with filmmaker Jenny Morgan on film, protest and democracy in Israel-Palestine.

Doors open 7pm for 7.30 start. Free entry.

Filmed from the perspective of a Palestinian farm laborer (Emad Burnat),

’5 Broken Cameras’ was shot using six different video cameras – five of which were destroyed in the process of documenting Emad’s family’s life as well as Palestinian and international resistance to Israeli appropriation of land and occupation. This is a film about a family life set against 6 years of the collective struggle of the villagers of Bil’in against the erection of a wall on their land to separate them from the ever growing settlements. An extraordinary work of both cinematic and political activism, ‘5 Broken Cameras’ meshes personal essay with political cinema, showing how cameras and protests change lives. A moving testament to collective resistance.

    Although I could not recognize anyone in this group, I really appreciated the film and the courage of the director and Palestinians. It also reminded me very vividly of the days I spent in Jenin refugee camp years ago. Then unfortunately nothing has changed for better.
