The Story Of A West Bank Village Told With '5 Broken Cameras'
Thu, 07 Feb 2013 13:00:00 -0500
In 2005, Israel's security barrier went right through the village of Bil'in in the West Bank, and cut off some fields and olive groves on the other side.
The documentary 5 Broken Cameras tells the story of villagers protesting the establishment of the wall. The film is the first-ever Palestinian film to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.
It also focuses on the story of the co-director Emad Burnat. He got a video camera to record the birth of a son, and when the protests broke out, he became the unofficial cameraman for the weekly anti-wall protests that drew support from around the world.
Burnat and co-director Guy Davidi talk with NPR's Neal Conan about the making of the film and the cameras that were broken along the way.
