5 Broken Cameras

Post by iSiZ

IDFA (International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam) is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Last year we reported on this blog 5 Broken Cameras was number 1 public favourite during the festival of 2011. It also won the World Cinema Directing Award during Sundance Film Festival 2011. This year you can watch the doc online, check out the full length doc beneath.

5 Broken Cameras is about a Palestinian farm laborer Emad who has five video cameras, and each of them tells a different part of the story of his village’s resistance to Israeli oppression. Emad lives in Bil’in, just west of the city of Ramallah in the West Bank. The film is a personal portrait of a Palestinian village resisting encroaching Jewish settlements, as recorded by an inhabitant of the village over a number of years. It makes for an intensely powerful personal document about one village’s struggle against violence and oppression.
