Five Broken Cameras

In 2005, Israeli authorities began constructing a separation barrier on contested land near the town of Bil'in in the West Bank.

Emad Burnat, a Palestinian villager with a hand-held camera, recorded the conflict over six years using five cameras.

With each period he filmed he was able to document the unlawful brutality inflicted against Palestinians protesting the wall, whilst capturing the enduring hope held by his community.

Emad's cameras bear witness in this very personal film, where peaceful resistance is pushed to the limit.
