5 Broken Cameras is an account of weekly protests in Bil’in, a West Bank village divided by the Israeli Separation Wall. It was shot almost entirely by Palestinian farmer, Emad Burnat who bought his first camera in 2005 to record the birth of his youngest son. Edited by Israeli co-director, Guy Davidi, the film is structured around the destruction of Burnat’s cameras and follows one family’s evolution over five years of turmoil.

Wednesday 15 October 2013 at 7.30pm – 9.30pm

Sumud Palestine supports both farmers who are losing their land to the Israeli military occupation and mental health professionals working with traumatised families and children in the West Bank and Gaza. There will be an exhibition of photographs taken by Bil’in children which reveal everyday life through their eyes 10th – 24th October 2013.
