The Interfaith Community for Palestinian Rights will screen the film “5 Broken Cameras,” followed by a brief panel presentation and discussion.

The Academy Award nominee for best documentary is a deeply personal, first-hand account of nonviolence in Bil’in, a West Bank village threatened by encroaching Israeli settlements. Shot almost entirely by Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat, who bought his first camera in 2005 to record the birth of his youngest son, the film is structured around the violent destruction of a succession of Burnat’s video cameras, as olive trees are bulldozed, protests intensify, and lives are lost.

ICPR is a grassroots movement dedicated to promoting peace with justice for Palestinians. For more information, contact
