District 3 Movie Night: 5 Broken Cameras
May 30 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Short URL: https://seattledsa.org/?p=20658
Join District 3 comrades for our monthly movie night!
This month we’ll be watching 5 Broken Cameras, a first-hand account of protests in Bil’in, a West Bank village affected by the Israeli West Bank barrier.
When his fourth son, Gibreel, is born in 2005, self-taught cameraman Emad Burnat, a Palestinian villager, gets his first camera. At the same time in his village of Bil’in, the Israelis begin bulldozing village olive groves to build a barrier to separate Bil’in from the Jewish settlement Modi’in Illit. The barrier’s route cuts off 60% of Bil’in farmland and the villagers resist this seizure of more of their land by the settlers.
Burnat films the army and police beating and arresting villagers and activists who come to support them. Settlers destroy Palestinian olive trees and attack Burnat when he tries to film them. The army raids the village in the middle of the night to arrest children. He, his friends, and brothers are arrested or shot; some are killed. Each camera used to document these events is shot or smashed.
We’ll watch the film together and have a discussion afterward.
