Broken Cameras

The Neighbour Before the House
Al Jaar Qabla Al Daar
الجار قبل الدار

The screening program Broken Cameras brings together eleven films reflecting Palestine’s long-standing history of loss. Carrying its title from Emad Burnat and Guy Davidi’s 5 Broken Cameras, the program looks into the social, political, and ecological dimensions of the colonial practice of domination through a selection of films that expand the boundaries of fiction and documentary.

The politics of displacement refers not only to the loss of one’s land or home but also to the erasure of memory, archival gaps, ecological destruction, and the obliteration of indigenous knowledge. Featuring films by Basma Alsharif, Eric Baudelaire, CAMP, Inas Halabi, Jumana Manna, Carol Mansour, Emad Burnat, and Guy Davidi, the selection addresses different aspects of loss and captures a visual record of a contested geography. The archival footage, testimonies, and fictional narratives featured in the films foreground what is left out of the official historiography, recalling individual and collective accounts back into the collective memory.

Broken Cameras is programmed by Fatma Çolakoğlu, Eylül Şenses, and Gülce Özkara from Salt.

Al jaar qabla al daar (The neighbour before the house), 2009-2011

الجار قبل الدار

“The Neighbour before the House” is a series of video probes into the landscape of East Jerusalem. Shot with a CCTV security camera, these images show that before and after instrumental "surveillance", there is inquisitiveness, jest, memory, desire and doubt that pervades the project of watching. A voice finds an image, an image is probed beneath its surface, thoughts withdraw or rebound.In these specific times and places, camera movements and live commentary become ways in which Palestinian residents evaluate what can be seen, and speak about the nature of their distance from others.

60 mins, SD CCTV video and sync audio.
Filmed in 2009 and edited into this film in 2011.
