Film: 5 Broken Cameras
BLUE HILL– Peninsula Peace & Justice will screen 5 Broken Cameras on Saturday, February 23 in Blue Hill. The documentary, co-directed by Palestinian Emad Burnat and Israeli Guy Davidi, covers events in the West Bank village of Bil’in, close to the border between Israel and occupied Palestine, from 2005 to 2009. It focuses on the experiences of an amateur video-filmmaker’s family and on his village’s innovative non-violent protests against walls and settlements that increasingly encroached on its traditional farmlands.
Nominated for an Oscar for Best Documentary of 2012, 5 Broken Cameras won the World Cinema Directing Award at the Sundance Film Festival in 2012. All footage was shot on five home movie cameras Burnat acquired one at a time through these years, each of which suffered breakage in an assault, accident, or arrest associated with the resistance to the occupation.
The 90-minute film will be shown at Blue Hill Library at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 23. Free, including refreshments, and open to the public. For info, call 664-0742.
