5 Broken Cameras

EPISODE:

Episode Info

"5 Broken Cameras" relates the story of Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat, who bought a video camera in 2005 to record his and his wife's new baby, and wound up using it to also document his village's protests against Israel's security fence, which cut through the community's farmlands, and the expansion plan of a nearby Israeli settlement. The film takes its name from the number of video cameras that Burnat used. Two were shot; a third broken by a settler; and a fourth damaged in an auto accident.
