The Oscar-nominated film "5 Broken Cameras," a documentary recording several years of Palestinian nonviolent resistance to the Israeli occupation in the West Bank village of Bil'in, received the best documentary award at the 41st International Emmy Awards, Monday in New York. 

The film was co-directed by Palestinian Emad Burnat and Israeli Guy Davidi, making Burnat the first Palestinian to win an Emmy.  Burnat, a farmer from Bil'in, shot the film over several years, beginning in 2005, with the use of 5 cameras, most of which were eventually broken in clashes with the Israeli soldiers.

The story follows the growth of his son, Gibreel, with a backdrop of weekly protests against the construction of the Israeli Apartheid Wall on Palestinian land.  Burnat also captured the violence of the Israeli soldiers on Palestinians during their peaceful protests. 

"5 Broken Cameras" has been screened at many film festivals and received won the prize for best documentary directing in the World Cinema category at the Sundance Film Festival. The film was nominated for an Academy Award this year, but lost to "Searching for Sugarman."
