Five Broken Cameras – Emad Burnat, a Palestinian farmer from the village of Bil’in, spends his days and nights recording life about him in his native Bil’in, the township where his family has lived for generations. Emad made this film over five years, and the title refers to the five cameras that were variously smashed in action during that time. Over the years he recorded the history of his embattled village, both its private and public sides. He recorded some of the fiercest footage of assaults and atrocities on the West Bank as well as the arson wreaked on Palestinian olive groves by illegal Jewish settlers.
Over the course of the film, he becomes the peaceful archivist of an escalating struggle as lives are lost, olive trees are bulldozed, and an apartheid wall is built to segregate burgeoning illegal Israeli settlements.
