This Oscar nominated film features the story of Emad, a resident of the Palestinian village of Bil’in, west of Ramallah in the West Bank, who bought a camera to make home movies of his newborn son Gibreel but soon began to document his village’s non-violent defiance against the taking of their land.

It was shot using six different video cameras – five of which were destroyed in the process.

The film captures Gibreel growing up amidst his community’s peaceful resistance to plans to erect a wall through their land to separate them from the ever growing Israeli settlements.

With hundreds of hours of video footage covering a period of over six years, Emad started working with Israeli activist and filmmaker Guy Davidi to edit and produce the film.
