[Limerick] Film Screening: Five Broken Cameras (Israeli Apartheid Week 2013)

category limerick | rights and freedoms | event notice author Wednesday February 13, 2013 16:24author by IPSC - IPSC Report this post to the editors

A deeply personal, first-hand account of non-violent resistance in a West Bank village threatened by encroaching Israeli settlements. shot almost entirely by Emad Burnat, a Palestinian farmer, the Oscar nominated FIVE BROKEN CAMERAS is an extraordinary work of both cinematic and political activism.

The screening will take place as part of Israeli Apartheid Week 2013 in Pery’s Hotel, Glentworth Street in Limerick City Centre on Wednesday 27th February. The film starts at 8pm.

It’s a sad reality for Burnat that one of the first phrases mastered by his toddler son Gibreel, is “the wall”. Burnat has the misfortune to be living in the Palestinian village of Bil’in, which Israeli settlers, protected by an aggressive Israeli army, are attempting to make their own.

Although he first bought a camera to film his family, he also begins recording the increasingly chaotic scenes taking place in the beautiful landscape outside his house. When his camera is shot or smashed, he moves onto another one. Five years eventually yields five broken cameras, giving the film its title and chapter structure.

Although he never planned to be a film-maker, Burnat proves to be both a brave and an extraordinary one, keeping his camera rolling amidst frightening scenes of unpredictable aggression, often aimed at himself, in a film richly deserving of its many awards.

Winner – Audience Award and the Special Jury Prize at International Documentary Festival Amsterdam

Winner – World Cinema Directing Award at the World Documentary Competition at Sundance
