Five Broken Cameras is an award-winning documentary about a Palestinian farmer's photographic and video chronicle of his fellow-villagers' peaceful resistance to the ongoing incursions of Israel's security wall/fence into Palestinian lands.

Five Broken Cameras premiered on PBS in August as one of their "POV" documentaries. For more information on the film, please click on the following link:

And here's a synopsis:

Nominated for an Oscar®, 5 Broken Cameras is a deeply personal first-hand account of life and nonviolent resistance in Bil’in, a West Bank village where Israel is building a security fence. Palestinian Emad Burnat, who bought his first camera in 2005 to record the birth of his youngest son, shot the film and Israeli filmmaker Guy Davidi co-directed. The filmmakers follow one family’s evolution over five years, witnessing a child’s growth from a newborn baby into a young boy who observes the world unfolding around him. The film is a Palestinian-Israeli-French co-production.
