Storyline

When his fourth son, Gibreel, is born, Emad, a Palestinian villager, gets his first camera. In his village, Bil'in, a separation barrier is being built and the villagers start to resist this decision. For more than five years, Emad films the struggle, which is led by two of his best friends, alongside filming how Gibreel grows. Very soon it affects his family and his own life. Daily arrests and night raids scare his family; his friends, brothers and himself are either shot or arrested. One Camera after another is shot at or smashed, each camera tells a part of his story.

Quotes

Himself - Narrator: Healing is a challenge in life. It's a victim sole obligation. By healing, you resist oppression. But when I'm hurt over and over again, I forget the wounds that rule my life. Forgotten wounds can't be healed. So I film to heal. I know they may knock at my door at any moment. But I'll just keep filming. It helps me confront life. And survive.

Apartheid is alive and well in Isreal
13 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was hunting around for some documentaries and stumbled on this film. I don't like to watch this type of film because it really makes me sad to see the hypocrites in this world! It's so ironic that the Zionists are the new Hitler and have basically created an Apartheid state in that region. See this film also reminded me of the Western expansion of the USA and how American Indians and Mexicans were slaughtered, tricked, and forced to give up their land! I hate to see any group of people be bullied by a big faceless government. Those ugly apartments and walls, is exactly what the Germans did when they called Jews vermin and basically caged them in and slowly exterminated them. I don't see much difference in this situation and it's shameful to know it is happening as a human being in 2013!
