Watch 5 Broken Cameras FILM

  • This location is shown only to members

Film Screening: 5 Broken Cameras - Thursday 2/21 at 7 pm

Location: 100 Boalt Hall (Enter through the East courtyard, off Bancroft near Simon Hall     and Cafe Zeb)

5 Broken Cameras is a first-hand account of non-violent resistance in Bil'in, a West Bank village threatened by encroaching Israeli settlements. The documentary was shot almost entirely by Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat, who bought his first camera in 2005 to record the birth of his youngest son. In 2009 Israeli co-director Guy Davidi joined on to create the film. Structured around the destruction of Burnat's cameras, the filmmakers' collaboration follows one family's evolution over five years of turmoil.

5 Broken Cameras won the World Cinema Directing Award at Sundance 2012 and was nominated for Best Documentary Feature in the 2013 Academy Awards. Watch the film before the ceremony, February 24!

    Where is the best spot to park?

    February 20, 2013

    • Faiza

      There are side streets that aren't too bad, can't think of names....gotta just circle and search or park in one of the nearby garages ...Downtown Berkeley BART isn't too far away either..
