"5 Broken Cameras" wins Palestine’s first Emmy




 


Emad Burnat’s 5 Broken Cameras took the prize for best documentary at the International Emmy Awards in New York City on Monday evening.
“It’s a big honor to be the first Palestinian to win an Emmy award,” Burnat told the elite industry crowd in his acceptance speech (watch it here).
“I made this film … to share my story with you and all the world. We want what you want — peace and liberty. We want a good future for our kids so we need your support and your help. Free Palestine,” he concluded.
5 Broken Cameras is an intimate portrayal of the grassroots resistance movement inBilin village in the occupied West Bank, featuring footage and narration by Burnat, one of the leaders of the popular protests brutally repressed by the Israeli army.
The film was nominated for an Oscar for best documentary earlier this year.
