Human rights organization B’Tselem publishes regular updates and comprehensive reports on human rights violations in the Occupied Territories. In 2005, B’Tselem established a video department, seeking to amplify the impact and power of the written word with visual documentation.
Two years later, B’Tselem launched the Camera Project, providing video cameras and training to Palestinian volunteers in the West Bank to document their own lives under Israeli occupation. Since the Camera Project was launched, the real-time images taken by these amateur photographers have become a staple of B’Tselem’s reporting. They have been carefully catalogued, resulting in an extensive and unique video archive. The footage in this film is taken from this archive of thousands of hours of raw material captured by B’Tselem staff and volunteers over the past decade.
Screening in the presence of the filmmakers.
