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 also directed many short documentaries such as In Working Progress, Women Defying Barriers, Keywords presented in film festivals and venues worldwide. In 2010, Guy's first feature film Interrupted Streams premiered in the Jerusalem International Film Festival.

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.

5 Broken Cameras won the best world cinema directing award for both Guy and Emad and 5 Broken Cameras was nominated for best documentary at Sundance.
