Watch this Oscar-nominated account of a West Bank village where Israel is building a security fence. 

Nominated for an Oscar®, this a deeply personal first-hand account of life and nonviolent resistance in Bil’in, a West Bank village where Israel is building a security fence. Palestinian Emad Burnat, who bought his first camera in 2005 to record the birth of his youngest son, shot the film, and Israeli filmmaker Guy Davidi co-directed. The filmmakers follow one family’s evolution over five years, witnessing a child’s growth from a newborn baby into a young boy who observes the world unfolding around him. POV: 5 Broken Cameras, airing Monday, August 26, 2013 at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV, is a Palestinian-Israeli-French co-production.
