Connecticut Chapter

Saturday, April 27, 2013
Location: Storrs, Conn.

The recent Academy Award nominated, documentary film will be shown on Saturday, April 27, 7:00 PM at the Storrs Friends Meetinghouse, 57 Hunting Lodge Road. 

The film's subject is the non-violent resistance to Israel's military occupation of the Palestinian village of Bil'in (in the West Bank).  It was directed by the filmmakers Emad Burnat, a Palestinian, and Guy Davidi, an Israeli, and is the story of Burnat, a farmer, and his family.  It begins in 2005 when the Israeli government builds a separation wall through their village and depicts the villagers' non-violent resistance to the wall and the Israeli army's harsh reaction.  Over the five years of filming, five of Burnat's cameras are destroyed.

"5 Broken Cameras" won the World Cinema Documentary Directing Award at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and the Best Documentary award at last year's Jerusalem Film Festival.  A Q & A period will follow the showing.

Palestinian handicrafts and olive oil will be available for sale.

This event is free and open to the public.  Please help to publicize it.  Come and bring a friend!
