Palestinian farmer Emad has five cameras, and each one tells a different part of the story of his village’s resistance against Israeli oppression. Emad lives in Bil’in, west of Ramala, on the West Bank. With his first camera, he shot the bulldozers that tore out the olive trees in 2005. A wall was built in his countrymen’s land, in order to separate the Palestinians from the increasing number of Jewish settlements. Emad’s son Gibreel was born on the early first days of the resistance against the Jewish settlers and the Israeli soldiers. The film features the footage of the kid growing up to become a precocious school boy, the several peaceful demonstrations, and the steady progress of the construction site. Supporters from all over the world, including Israel, offer to help the growing resistance, but the situation gets worse, people get arrested, and villagers are murdered. An intense and powerful personal document about this village’s struggle against violence and oppression. DOC BsAs
