"5 Broken Cameras" Documentary
  • Created By Sonya
  • Description:
    While learning about various conflicts occurring in the Middle East with my students, I heard about a documentary on the Israel/Palestine conflict that was receiving a lot of accolades from movie critics. Upon watching the film myself, I also watched it with my students. The film itself is available on Netflix but is created by a Palestinian man who experiences and films the conflict with 5 different cameras. It is very pro-Palestinian and the issue of biasness frequently came up in our discussions.

    The links below are from NPR regarding this documentary. The first is a good overview of the movie itself while the latter is an interview with the co-director of the film.
  • Purpose:
    To provide students with an overview of the modern day Israel/Palestine conflict.
  • Targets: Teacher
