Human Rights Film Series presents Five Broken Cameras

A41 Sir Clive Granger Building
Monday 25th January 2016 (18:15-21:00)


Five Broken Cameras is a documentary filmed by the Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat, born inside the occupied territories of the West Bank, who uses his five cameras to document Palestinian life under the occupation and to demonstrate his civil engagement.

This deeply personal account of life and of non-violent resistance in Bil’in, a village surrounded by Israeli settlements, invites us to reflect on how the construction of the wall by Israel and the occupation affect the daily life of many Palestinians. In addition, since Burnat uses filming as a way to participate in the demonstrations against the wall, the documentary introduces the topic of non-violent resistance in the occupied territories.
