Guy Davidi - Israeli Documentary Filmmaker and Cinema Teacher - In Working Progress, Interrupted Streams, 5 Broken Cameras
Guy was born in Jaffa and has directed, edited, and shot films since the age of 16. As a cameraman, Guy shot several films for France 3 Television.
Guy's most recent documentary is 5 Broken Cameras, a collaboration with Emad Burnat, a Palestinian villager, who gets his first camera. In his village, Bil'in, a separation barrier is being built and the villagers start to resist.
For more than five years, Emad films the struggle, led by two of his best friends, while also filming his growing son Gibreel and the conflict’s effect on him and other family members. One Camera after another is shot or smashed, and each camera tells a part of his story.
