|Project||5 Broken Cameras (Hams camerat mohtmat)|
Emad is a Palestinian cameraman who decides to film the struggle against the separation wall in his village. He documents the strikes on his personal life due to the punishment actions of Israel; side-to-side to filming his children grows. Daily arrests, night raids scare his family, his brothers are arrested and sent to prison, his second friend is shot dead, finally he is arrested and even has a deadly car accident right in the route of the wall and from which he barley survives. One Camera after another, each unfolds another part of the story. His story is a story of resistance.
Emad Burnat_It's been 5 years since I started to film the struggle against the land robbing and the wall initiated in my village. I documented my friends, family and myself probably as other parents and friends do. It was only when the oppression started to penetrate the social relations inside my village - through the night invasions, the arrests and daily threats at our lives and our houses - that what was personal and what was social became so mixed, I was unable to say this happened to me or this happened to my village. Guy Davidi_Many People tend to put aside their own private experiences while taking part in a collective struggle for justice. When I met Emad, I felt that the real story of this resistance is his own.
