5 Broken Cameras: putting the daily violence of Israeli occupation in focus

November 14, 2012

I went down to Cinema Politica’s Montréal premier of 5 Broken Cameras to table for Imaging Apartheid and check out the film this Monday. It gives a clear depiction of the daily struggles Palestinian families face under occupation. A first person narrative documentary made by subsistence farmer Emad Burnat shows the rise of the non-violent protest movement in the village of Bil’in. He boldly documents his peoples struggles under the constant threat of live fire, It is by far one of the best films I’ve ever seen on Palestine
If you get a chance go see it, do.

It’s playing in Montréal on the 19, 20 and 22th of November at 17h (Excentris) Arabic with French subtitles
