Oscar-nominee 'Five Broken Cameras' sparks identity debate

"Five Broken Cameras" the Oscar-nominated documentary about Palestinian popular resistance in the occupied West Bank, has found itself at the centre of an unusual debate -- over its identity. Co-directed by Palestinian Emad Burnat and Israeli Guy Davidi, the film documents the story of Bil'in village and the struggle of its residents to protect their land from Jewish settlers and Israel's giant separation barrier. But while the story is Palestinian throughout, the film was made with funding from the Jewish state.
