Hi everyone,

A good-sounding Palestinian documentary/film, "5 Broken Cameras," is now
playing at the Kendall Square cinema, Cambridge, through Thr. June 28. This
is the kind of thing that desperately needs support. Bring friends. See you
there! -jdm

The documentary film "5 Broken Cameras":

Emad Burnat presents his five broken video cameras. They will tell his
story, every camera an episode in his life. When his fourth son, Gibreel,
is born in 2005, self-taught cameraman Burnat, a Palestinian villager, gets
his first camera. At the same time in his village of Bil'in, a separation
barrier is being built and the villagers begin to resist this decision. For
the next year, Burnat films this non-violent struggle while at the same
time recording the growth of his son. Very soon, these events begin to
affect his family and his own life. Daily arrests, violent attacks,
bulldozers knocking down olive trees, the loss of life and night raids in
the village scare his family. His friends, brothers and even himself are
either shot or arrested. One camera after another used to document these
events is shot or smashed. Eventually, Burnat joins forces with Guy
Davidi—an Israeli filmmaker—and together from these five broken cameras and
the stories that they represent, the two filmmakers create a powerful piece
of work. (Fully subtitled)
