An extraordinary work of both cinematic and political activism, 5 Broken Cameras is a deeply personal, first-hand account of non-violent resistance in Bil’in, a village in Palestine’s West Bank threatened by encroaching Israeli settlements and its so-called “separation barrier”. The film is shot almost entirely by Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat.

Currently on a U.S. speaking tour, Emad’s brother, Iyad, will tell the stories of Bil'in and life in occupied Palestine, and talk about strategies for non-violent popular resistance with a goal of peace and prosperity for all people.
