A must watch documentary on reality in a Palestinian village.,
This review is from: 5 Broken Cameras [DVD] (DVD)
This is a documentary filmed over a period of about 5 years and five cameras. A couple of which actually save the film maker's life. Almost immediately I forgot that the film was spoken in their native tongue with English subtitles as I was captured by the main characters. These main characters are ordinary people just trying like the rest of us to make a living. But unlike us have all their rights and land snatched cruelly away from them.
Parts of the film are funny....parts are shocking and so very, very sad, especially when you have to remind yourself that this is not some Hollywood blockbuster imitating 'war' but everyday life to these people.
This film should be on the National Curriculum in schools to open the worlds eyes to life as it is in village in Palestine.
Watch it. It WILL change your point of view on life out there forever!
