Showing of “5 Broken Cameras”

7pm Friday 11th Sep 2015 @  Friends Meeting House, 6 Mount Street, Manchester, M2 5NS (behind the Central Library).

This is a 94-minute documentary film co-directed by Emad Burnat and Guy Davidi. “5 Broken Cameras” is a first-hand account of the protests in Bil’in. The documentary was shot almost entirely by Emad Burnat, a Palestinian farmer, who bought his first camera in 2005 to record the birth of his youngest son. Structured around the destruction of Burnat’s cameras by the IDF, the filmmakers’ collaboration follows one family’s evolution over five years of turmoil. An amazing documentary not to be missed.

5 Broken CamerasThe film won a 2012 Sundance Film Festival award, it won the Golden Apricot at the 2012 Yerevan International Film Festival, Armenia, for Best Documentary Film, won the 2013 International Emmy Award, and was nominated for a 2012 Academy Award – no surprise that it did not win. Despite these commendation and in contrast other independent cinemas in the north of England, Manchester’s Corner House Cinema was not prepared to show it.
