Wednesday January 29, 2020 Five Broken Cameras

with the assistance of the Social Justice Action Group and commentary by Dr. Martin Bunton, Department of History, UVic

This award-winning documentary, jointly directed by Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat and Israeli film maker Guy Davidi, is an inspiring, and at the same time profoundly disconcerting, study of the daily challenges of Palestinians living in the West Bank and their relations with both the encroaching Israeli settlements and the Israeli Army. It portrays the attempts of Burnat and his neighbours in the community of Bil'it to combat non-violently their treatment as strangers in their own land. The film, made roughly ten years ago, has continuing relevance, not least because of the recent decision of the Trump administration not to oppose Israeli settlement in the territory.

Dr. Bunton is an expert in Middle Eastern history and is author of the concise, eminently readable, and balanced study, The Palestinian-Israeli Conflict: A Very Short Introduction (Oxford University Press, 2013).
