Beyond the Classroom presents "5 Broken Cameras"

Description:
An extraordinary work of both cinematic and political activism, 5 Broken Cameras is a deeply personal, first-hand account of non-violent resistance in Bilin, a West Bank village threatened by encroaching Israeli settlements. Shot almost entirely by Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat, who bought his first camera in 2005 to record the birth of his youngest son, the film was assembled by Burnat and Israeli co-director Guy Davidi. Structured around the violent destruction of each one of Burnats cameras, the filmmakers collaboration follows one familys evolution over five years of village turmoil. Burnat watches from behind the lens as olive trees are bulldozed, protests intensify, and lives are lost. I feel like the camera protects me, he says, but its an illusion. " Nominated for 2012 Academy Award, Best Documentary "Displays both distinction and the emergence of a significant talent. Presents vivid witness to the power of the image to help with...healing." The Jewish Week {Will appear in FYI on Oct 2, 2013
