A documentary film co-directed by Palestinian Emad Burnat and Israeli Guy Davidii. It is a first-hand account of protests in Bil'in, a West Bank village affected by the Israel West Bank barrier. The documentary was shot almost entirely by the Palestinian farmer who bought his first camera in 2005 to record the birth of his youngest son. Structured around the destruction of Burnat's cameras, it follows one family's evolution over five years of turmoil. The film won a 2012 Sundance Film Festival award and was nominated for a 2013 Academy Award.
