5 Broken Cameras Review

Image for 5 Broken Cameras

A documentary following the nonviolent actions of a Palestinian farmer in his resistance against the Israeli army.


Farm labourer Emad Burnat’s handheld footage of the Palestinian village of Bil’in’s battle against creeping Israeli encroachment is a remarkable tribute to the ordinary men, women and children resisting bullets, grenades, raids and provocation with dignity, determination and good humour.

A touching and revelatory piece of film-making about the plights of real people living in an uncertain world.
