First Friday Film At Brandywine Peace

Peace Center of Delaware County First-Friday Free Large Screen Film Series, 1001 Old Sproul Road, Springfield, PA 19064.Friday, May 3, at 7p.m.5 BROKEN CAMERAS(Palestinian-Israeli-French Co-Production, Directed by Emad Burnat and Guy Davidi, 90 minutes, Not Rated, Arabic and Hebrew with English subtitles, Music by Le Trio Joubran.)

The 2013 Oscar-nominated "Best Documentary Feature", 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, whose very sustenance is threatened by the Israeli West Bank Separation Wall.

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 Israeli filmmaker, Guy Davidi.

Structured in chapters around the destruction of each one of Burnat's cameras by Israeli soldiers, the film follows one family's evolution over five years of village upheaval
as olive trees are bulldozed, protests intensify, and lives are lost. The film is a cinematic diary that provides us with an unparalleled record of Palestinian life under Israeli military occupation.
Doors open at 6:30p.m. for light refreshments.
