[Dublin] Film Screening: Five Broken Cameras (DCU)
Thursday April 2nd at 6pm in Room HG17, Dublin City University, Glasnevin, Dublin 9. Free Entry.
5 BROKEN CAMERAS (Dir. E. BURNAT, G. DAVIDI, 2012; PALESTINE)
The critically-acclaimed 5 BROKEN CAMERAS is a deeply personal, first-hand account of life and non-violent resistance in Bil’in, a West Bank village surrounded by Israeli settlements. Shot by Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat, who bought his first camera in 2005 to record the birth of his youngest son, Gibreel, the film was co-directed by Burnat and Guy Davidi, an Israeli filmmaker. Structured in chapters around the destruction of each one of Burnat’s cameras, the filmmakers’ collaboration follows one family’s evolution over five years of village upheaval. Burnat watches from behind the lens as olive trees are bulldozed, protests intensify and lives are lost in this cinematic diary and unparalleled record of life in the West Bank.
