5 Broken Cameras

Synopsis
This film tells the story of Emad Burnat, who was celebrating the birth of his fourth Gibreel when Israeli settlers began building a huge separation barrier in his village. Over the course of the next two years Burnat alternated between documenting his son’s development, and turning his camera on the peaceful protests over the controversial barrier. As tensions rise Burnat captures images of the struggle between his people and the Israeli settlers, and buys a new camera each time his old one is damaged in the fray.
