About the film:
When his fourth son, Gibreel, is born, Emad, a Palestinian villager, gets his first camera. In his village, Bil’in, a separation barrier is being built and the villagers start to resist this decision. For more than five years, Emad films the struggle, which is lead by two of his best friends, alongside filming how Gibreel grows. Very soon it affects his family and his own life. Daily arrests and night raids scare his family; his friends, brothers and him as well are either shot or arrested. One camera after another is shot at or smashed, each camera tells a part of his story.
The opening night screening is presented by DOCTALK, a monthly partnership with Doc Alberta, which provides an opportunity for discourse around documentaries through post-screening discussions. Both of the film’s directors will be joining us via Skype for a Q&A after the film. The Q&A will be facilitated by members of the Palestine Solidarity Network-Edmonton. Preceding the feature is the short documentary ‘Chad Van Gaalen’ by local filmmaker Ramin Eshraghi-Yazdi.
