The award-winning documentary 5 Broken Cameras is about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. It offers a personal perspective on the situation through the lens of Emad Burnat, a Palestinian farmer and amateur cameraman who is faced with the violent occupation of his country and engages in peaceful resistance. The documentary sheds light on the human stories behind the conflict. “This way, we hope to inspire empathy.”


“To maximize the impact of the screening, we’re organizing an engaging dialogue after the documentary in which two people who have seen and experienced the conflict from different perspectives get to share their experiences and insights.”

The dialogue will take place between Yuval Gal (Erev Rav) and Mohammed Kotesh (Palestinian Community in the Netherlands). Erev Rav is an anti-Zionist Jewish community in the Netherlands that advocates for a free Palestine. The organizer “hopes to have a constructive dialogue and raise awareness of the ongoing injustices in Palestine.”
