Synopsis:

When his son Gibreel is born, Emad, a Palestinian villager, gets his first camera. In his village - Bil'in, a separation barrier is being built on the villagers' lands, which the villagers begin to resist. Throughout the years Emad films the struggle lead by two of his friends while also filming life with his son growing. Very soon this struggle affects his life. Daily arrests and night raids scare his family; his friends, brothers and even Emad are either shot or arrested. One camera after another is shot or smashed. And with each camera a part of Emad's story unfolds.

Do you have contact information so that I might try and get DVD copies of 5 Broken Cameras, Gypsy Davy, and The Law in these Parts so that we can screen them and consider them for upcoming film festivals? Also, do you know how I can get a copy of Sallah Shabati to screen? Thank you--
