Five Broken Cameras

November 23, 2011

Five broken cameras – and each one has a powerful tale to tell. Embedded in the bullet-ridden remains of digital technology is the story of Emad Burnat, a farmer from the Palestinian village of Bil’in, which famously chose nonviolent resistance when the Israeli army encroached upon its land to make room for Jewish colonists. Emad buys his first camera in 2005 to document the birth of his fourth son, Gibreel. Over the course of the film, he becomes the peaceful archivist of an escalating struggle as olive trees are bulldozed, lives are lost, and a wall is built to segregate burgeoning Israeli settlements.

For more than 20 years, the journalist Gideon Levy brought horror stories from the occupied territories to Israeli readers. A play writer reads his article and writes a play, a theater director adapts it to the stage, actors play in it to the audience, which are now able to encounter on stage the not so distant horrible reality. A mediated encounter. And now, accessible for you, a film... 'Keywords' exists in times where info is a product. It casts doubt on the capability of Media and Arts to fulfill the role they once filled: actual contact between people.
