This unusual film — part documentary, part memoir — takes place inside the occupied West Bank. Emad Burnat, a Palestinian villager, goes through five different cameras from 2005 to 2010, each one broken when the Israeli military or police assault him as he tries to record the ongoing turmoil. Not all the events — the birth of his son, for example — are unfortunate. But mostly he films scenes such as his neighbors protesting the barriers built across their land, or activists organizing, or the authorities destroying their strongholds, injuring him and his friends. In one instance, a beloved compatriot dies. Collaborating with Israeli filmmaker Guy Davidi, Emad resists his wife's pleas to stop filming, realizing that the risk is worth the healing he can provide. Shocking footage details the horrors of the village's daily routine; but amidst the violence, a spirit of resistance prevails, providing hope of redemption.
