      Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat bought a
      camera in 2005 to document the birth of his
      youngest son. That event coincided with the
      beginning of construction of the separation
      fence in his West Bank village of Bil'in.

      Because the Zionist plan would result in the confiscation of 50% of the villagers' land, as it would in many other villages, a popular resistance movement
      emerged in Bil'in. Burnat began documenting
      the struggle for the movement and gradually his
      footage was widely used by international media.


      He began working as a freelance photographer
      for Reuters and provided footage for other film
      projects. Over the years and as his son grew,
      five cameras were broken in seperate violent
      attacks on the villagers' resistance by Israeli
      military forces. In 2009, progressive Israeli
      filmaker Guy Davidi joined with Burnat and
      together they tell the story of the resistance
      movement by telling the story of five broken
      cameras.
