“When something happens in the village, my instinct is to film it,” explains self-taught videomaker Emad Burnat, a resident of the Palestinian village of Bil’in in the occupied West Bank. Burnat scrupulously records Israeli-Palestinian clashes in and around Bil’in for years – that’s how his five cameras get broken. The vids show Israeli troops behaving like arrogant, brutal aggressors, but Burnat keeps documenting his neighbors’ attempts to maintain a non-violent strategy of protest in the face of force, and the result is this powerfully moving homemade doc – put together with help from Israeli filmmaker Guy Davidi. Same old story: When it has been decided that Israeli settlers should be allowed to move in and take over Palestinian land, no one can stop them, on pain of death. Strong stuff (90 min.)
Director: Emad Burnat and Guy Davidi
Producer: Guy Davidi and Emad Burnat
