5 Broken Cameras

It hadn't occurred to me until I got to Thessaloniki that one of the pros of being at a documentary film festival was that I would get to see lots of documentary films.  

To me, 5 Broken Cameras, a film about the conflict in Israel/Palestine, is the epitome of what documentary film is supposed to be: a story told from the inside, from the point of view a journalist wouldn't be capable of.  It is one of the most powerful films I've ever seen.  I can't recommend it highly enough.

One of the most powerful quotes from this heartbreaking film:

"Forgotten wounds can't be healed."

Here is the trailer.  Please, please see it if you can.
