Emad Burnat, Guy Davidi / Palestine, Israel, France / 2011 / 94 min

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 lead by two of his best friends, alongside filming how Gibreel grows.

»Healing is a challenge in life. It is a victim's sole obligation. By healing you resist oppression. It is to use the camera as protection, and as a witness, and to use it also to heal. Because if you have no job, no money, how do you survive and how do you heal? It became difficult for me. I mean that I used the camera to heal, to survive, and to remember. Because the camera reminds me of all scenes of the past. To use the camera as a witness. The camera became like my friend. The camera was connected to me, so to leave the camera and put it away was difficult for me. So I felt my responsibility was to take the camera and keep filming. Filming I could heal myself and use the camera as[a] witness and for change. To open people's eyes.« (Emad Burnat)
