“How do we deal with our anger? Something new.”
A first-hand record of resistance to the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian town of Bil’in, seen through five cameras: the first exploded by an Israeli gas canister; the second smashed by Israeli settlers; the third pierced by an Israeli military bullet intended for the film-maker; the fourth demolished in a car crash into an Israeli barrier; the fifth destroyed by yet another Israeli bullet. The cameras witness Israeli settlers burning Palestinian olive trees, Israeli soldiers attacking Palestinian children, and the murder of a young Palestinian man defending an Israeli protester from her own government. An essential work.
