Dir: Emad Burnat & Guy Davidi
Winner: World Cinema Documentary, Sundance Film Festival, 2012
An extraordinary work of both cinematic and political activism, it depicts the first-hand account of protests in Bil’in, a West Bank village affected by the Israeli wall. Initially given a camera to capture the birth and childhood of Emad’s son Gibreel, the film chronicles Gibreel growing up against a backdrop of ongoing protests that have become an intrinsic part of daily life.
Emad’s brother Iyad Burnat, who features in the film, will be speaking at RISC on 30 April
