Guy Davidi, the director of "5 Broken Cameras", expressed infuriation towards the Israeli media and said they were treating him unfairly and defaming his name.
"The Israeli media can not understand my complex messages. I am touching on sore points in Israeli society and airing them. I will not be the punching bag of Israeli society."
Many have argued that Davidi's film, which deals with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, presents Israel in a negative light and was even accused of inciement by a senior IDF officer.
