Red Cinema presents: 5 Broken Cameras
An extraordinary work of both cinematic and political activism, 5 Broken Cameras is a deeply personal, first-hand account of non-violent resistance in Bil’in, a West Bank village threatened by encroaching Israeli settlements.
The film is shot almost entirely by Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat, and structured around the violent destruction of each one of Burnat’s cameras.
Burnat watches from behind the lens as olive trees are bulldozed, protests intensify, and lives are lost. “I feel like the camera protects me,” he says, “but it’s an illusion”.
The film will be introduced by Vivienne Porzsolt, from Jews Against the Occupation, who has recently returned from volunteering in the West Bank.
6:30pm Friday May 17 (6pm for delicious meal)
