Emad Burnat tends to his equipment in 5 Broken Cameras.

The 2011 documentary film 5 Broken Cameras, nominated for a 2012 Best Documentary Academy Award,  is deeply personal, first-hand account of non-violent resistance in Bil’in, a West Bank village threatened by encroaching Israeli settlements.

Shot almost entirely by Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat, who bought his first camera in 2005 to record the birth of his youngest son, the footage was later turned into a a feature film by co-directors Guy Davidi and Burnat.

Structured around the violent destruction of a succession of Burnat’s video cameras, the filmmakers’ collaboration follows one family’s evolution over five years of village turmoil. Burnat watches from behind the lens as olive trees are bulldozed, protests intensify, and lives are lost. “I feel like the camera protects me,” he says, at one point. “But it’s an illusion.”
