5 Broken Cameras + They Came in the Morning

Friday 7th December to Thursday 13th December, 2012
Watershed, Bristol, BS1 5TX

Q & A with Ken Loach, Leila Sansour and Bidisha (7th Dec, 2012 @20:00)

They Came in the Morning

Leila Sansour | UK, Palestine | 2012 | 2 min |Arabic

Leila Sansour’s latest work depicts the reaction of a Palestinian farmer who discovers one day that his livelihood has been destroyed with no prior warning or reason why.

5 Broken Cameras*

Emad Burnat and Guy Davidi | France, Israel, Palestine | 2011 | 94 min |Arabic, Hebrew

It’s a sad reality for Emad Burnat that one of the first phrases mastered by his toddler son Gibreel, is ‘the wall’. Although he first bought a camera to film his family, he also begins recording the increasingly chaotic scenes taking place in the beautiful landscape outside his house. When his camera is broken, he moves onto another one – five years yielding five broken cameras, giving the film its title and chapter structure. Although he never planned to be a film-maker, Burnat proves to be both a brave and an extraordinary one, keeping his camera rolling amidst frightening scenes of unpredictable aggression, often aimed at himself, in a film richly deserving of its many awards.  Find out more about the making of the film here…
