Wed 26 Jun 2013, 4pm: Private viewing of 5 Broken Cameras in Oban

Oban Concern for Palestine
take pleasure in extending this personal invitation to you for a private viewing in Oban:


Oban Phoenix Cinema Wednesday, 26 June 2013 4pm

The first-ever Palestinian film to be nominated for best Documentary Feature by A.M.P.A.S®, the critically-acclaimed 5 BROKEN CAMERAS is a deeply personal, first-hand account of life and non-violent resistance in Bil’in, a West Bank village surrounded by Israeli settlements.
Shot by Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat, who bought his first camera in 2005 to record the birth of his youngest son, Gibreel, the film was co-directed by Burnat and Guy Davidi, an Israeli filmmaker. Structured in chapters around the destruction of each one of Burnat’s cameras, the filmmakers’ collaboration follows one family’s evolution over five years of village upheaval.
As the years pass in front of the camera, we witness Gibreel grow from a newborn baby into a young boy who observes the world unfolding around him with the astute powers of perception that only children possess.  Burnat watches from behind the lens as olive trees are bulldozed, protests intensify and lives are lost in this cinematic diary and unparalleled record of life in the West Bank.

5 BROKEN CAMERAS is a Palestinian-Israeli-French co-production.
A Kino Lorber Release.

Winner of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival World Cinema Directing Award – Documentary; Winner of the 2011 idfa Film Festival Special Jury Award and Audience Award; 2012 Academy Award® Nominee for Best Documentary Feature
