Bill Plitt, a long time friend, told me about this film, but I was leaving DC before I had a chance to see it. I hope it is still showing when I return next week.
Bill is a returned Peace Corps volunteer and has spent much of his life working with children and families in education. Most recently, among other activities, he has been director of community outreach for Friends of Tent of Nations North America, which supports cross-cultural understanding and the peaceful resolution of conflicts.
Movie: Five Broken Cameras, Review by Bill Plitt
Last Friday, my wife and I, along with some friends went to see the documentary, Five Broken Cameras at “E” Street Theatre in Washington D.C where it was showing in a limited engagement of two weeks- pity. We read the review in The Post, nudged by our friends of Jewish Voices for Peace, and went to see it for ourselves. We knew it had won the Sundance Film Festival Award in January for World Cinema Documentary Director Award. It was worth the venture we thought. So we went.
