"An effective pairing of political history with personal life, 5 BROKEN CAMERAS offers a first-hand look at five years of West Bank protests."
Film Comment - 05/01/2012
"The film does succeed as a powerful evocation of war, friendship, and heroic resistance."
New York Times - 05/30/2012
"[A] visual essay in autobiography and, as such, a modest, rigorous and moving work of art."
A.V. Club - 05/31/2012
"The personal and the political are one and the same in the striking documentary 5 BROKEN CAMERAS..."
Los Angeles Times - 09/13/2012
"As raw as the material of 5 BROKEN CAMERAS can be, it is also lyrical and elegiac."

5 stars out of 5 -- "The sights captured are sobering, shocking....Despite the palpable sense of despair running through the film, it does end on a note of victory..."
Wall Street Journal - 02/21/2013
"[I]t casts a baleful light on anguishing, seemingly incessant scenes of tear gas hurled, bullets fired, villagers fleeing for their lives and, on one shocking occasion, a life lost as the camera rolls. This is how the conflict looks from the other side of the barrier."
