    Weʼve raised £2,550 to get a new camera for the courageous film-maker of 5 Broken Cameras, Burnat, to continue filming, bearing witness in his vulnerable community

    Funded on Monday, 25th March 2019

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    We are seeking to raise money for a new camera for the courageous film-maker Emad Burnat who made the film 5 Broken Cameras, to enable him to continue his film-making, witnessing what is taking place in his vulnerable community abandoned by the world's media.

    5 Broken Cameras, filmed by Emad Burnat, was nominated for Best Documentary Feature in the 85th Academy awards. Self-taught, Burnat documented his son Gibreel's life from his birth, in the context of the Israelis' attempts to build a wall to separate their village, Bil'in, from 60% of their farmland and the Jewish settlement Modi'in Illit, and of the village inhabitants' non-violent protest. The film captures the struggle of the villagers trying to live their lives, the occupation and the protests, and Gibreel's development within it. All five of Burnat's cameras were destroyed during the filming.

    Please help us to provide a new camera for this important film-maker, to ensure the continued witnessing of how the community is surviving and the effects on Gibreel's development in the context of what he and his family are experiencing.

      We continue to need documentary filmmakers who are prepared to tackle difficult subjects. Emad's work on life under Israeli occupation is courageous and enlightening.

      I really appreciated your film at the Palestinian Childhoods conference, which in itself shows the importance of recording the voices of Palestinians living with extreme domination.
