Oscar
Nomination



We
are
excited
to
announce
that
5
BROKEN
CAMERAS
has
been
selected
for
an
Oscar

nomination
for
Best
Documentary
Feature
amongst
a
strong
line‐up
of
films;
The

Gatekeeper,
Invisible
War,
How
to
Survive
a
Plague
and
Searching
for
Sugar
Man.


We
would
like
to
pass
on
our
Congratulations
to
Emad
Burnat
and
Guy
Davidi
for

securing
this
nomination
as
well
as
receiving
many
major
awards,
including
the
top
prize

at
Cinema
Eye
Honors
for
Outstanding
Achievement
in
Nonfiction
Feature
Filmmaking.




Having
taken
six
years
to
make
with
hundreds
of
hours
of
video
footage,
their
sheer

hard
work
patience
and
perseverance
has
paid
off
well.

In
return
the
film
has
given
us

all
the
opportunity
to
share
their
insight
into
the
daily
struggle
for
liberty
against
all

odds
and
hopefully
the
strength
to
carry
on
any
injustice
we
may
find
ourselves
in.


An
extraordinary
work
of
both
cinematic
and
political
activism,
5
Broken
Cameras

daringly
meshes
personal
essay
with
political
cinema,
displaying
how
images
and

cameras
can
change
lives
and
realities.
