S-CAR World Cafe Film Series: 5 Broken Cameras
- April 22, 2014 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Arlington Campus, Founders Hall, John Burton Library
When his fourth son, Gibreel, is born, Emad, a Palestinian villager, gets his first camera. In his village, Bil'in, a separation barrier is being built and the villagers start to resist this decision. For more than five years, Emad films the struggle, which is led by two of his best friends, alongside filming how Gibreel grows. Very soon it affects his family and his own life. Daily arrests and night raids scare his family; his friends, brothers and himself are either shot or arrested. One Camera after another is shot at or smashed, each camera tells a part of his story.
Light foods will be provided.
