OFF_FRAME's rating of the film 5 Broken Cameras

A powerful, personal and surprisingly accessible documentary about belonging, suffering, endurance and loss of innocence within the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine. The filmmakers lay their lives on the line while staying very much impartial. There was only one scene where father and son are working on a car together that I found myself questioning any sense of manipulation. Great stuff! 4 stars
