Nhan Dan Online/VNA - Hanoians will have a chance to learn more about the land and people of Palestine through a week of movies made by Palestinians, to be screened at the Hanoi Cinematheque from December 4-9.

The Palestine Embassy in Hanoi remarked today that the films are being screened to mark the International Day for Solidarity with the Palestinian People (November 29) and the 25th anniversary of Vietnam-Palestine diplomatic ties (November 19).

In addition to several feature films, viewers can also watch the documentary Five Broken Cameras, which provides an honest view of the life and feelings of Palestinian people on occupied land.

The film’s renowned Palestinian director, Emad Burnat, will be on hand to meet with audiences after each screening.

Five Broken Cameras is a deeply personal, first-hand account of non-violent resistance in Bil'in, a West Bank village threatened by encroaching Israeli settlements.

The film won awards at the Amsterdam International Documentary Film Festival in 2011 and the Sundance Film Festival in 2012. It was one of five documentaries nominated for an Academy Award in 2012.
