The Academy Award-nominated documentary Five Broken Cameras is a first-hand account of non-violent resistance in Bil’in, a village in the Palestinian West Bank threatened by encroaching Israeli settlements. The Broad Street United Methodist Church, 501 East Broad Street is hosting a free screening of the film from 5 to 7 p.m. on Sunday, January 26. Popcorn will be provided.

Five Broken Cameras is a collaboration between Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat, who shot most of the footage, and Israeli co-director Guy Davidi. The film follows one family's experiences over five years of village turmoil, told within the framework of the violent destruction of each of Burnat's five video cameras.

"A chronicle of protest and endurance, punctuated by violence and tiny glimmers of hope, this documentary is unlikely to persuade anyone with a hardened view of the issue to think again," writes reviewer A. O. Scott in The New York Times. "For anyone who retains an interest in the human contours of the situation, however, the movie is necessary, if difficult, viewing."
