Our programme of club film nights continues with a screening of 5 Broken Cameras, a first-hand account of protests in Bil’in, a West Bank village affected by the Israeli Wall referred to as the the fence in this documentary. 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.
