5 Broken Cameras Screening Comments

The School of Communication and Department of Radio, Television and Film, in collaboration with the Center for Civic Engagement presents a free screening of the Oscar-nominated documentary film 5 BROKEN CAMERAS as part of the Documentary Perspectives Series made possible by a grant from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

The first-ever Palestinian film to be nominated for the Best Documentary Feature Oscar®, 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. Co-directed by Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat and Guy Davidi, an Israeli filmmaker, the film 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.

Guest speaker: Richard Lorber, President and CEO of Kino Lorber, the film’s distributor.

Refreshments will be served.
