Oscar-nominated documentary, “5 Broken Cameras,” March 29, not April 5

Henry Ford Community College will screen “5 Broken Cameras,” followed by a dialogue about the film’s impact, on Friday, March 29 instead of April 5, 2013, as originally noted, from 6 to 9:30PM at the Berry Amphitheater, located in the Andrew A. Mazzara Administrative Services & Conference Center (ASCC) on the main campus.


Directed by Emad Burnat and Guy Davidi, “5 Broken Cameras” is a firsthand account of the protests in Bil’in, a West Bank village impacted by the Israeli Wall, which is called “the fence” in the documentary. The fence is built on village land, which isolates the village from the majority of its farmland that the Israelis will then confiscate. However, the villagers resist. Burnat films their plight, which places his family in jeopardy. Daily arrests, violent attacks, loss of life and night raids become prevalent in Bil’in. The cameras used to document these events get smashed, hence the title.

The social hour will be from 6 to 7 p.m., the actual screening of the documentary from 7 to 8:30 p.m., followed by a dialogue about the documentary from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. Dr. Nabeel Abraham, director of the HFCC Honors Program, and Imad Nouri, director of the HFCC Counseling Division, will lead the dialogue.

Admission is free and open to the public. However, seating is limited and reservations are required. To make reservations and for more information, contact Dr. Michael Daher, director of the HFCC Arab Cultural Studies Program, via email at [email protected]. Please bring your confirmed reservation on April 5.
