‘5 Broken Cameras’ Directors Face Call for Slander Charges
The directors of the Oscar-nominated film “5 Broken Cameras” have been accused of incitement and slander. The Consensus organization filed an official request with the Attorney General asking that directors Guy Davidi and Emad Burnat face charges.
Consensus, which advocates for Israeli soldiers, stepped into the picture after several soldiers whose faces were revealed in the film appealed for help on Facebook.
The soldiers expressed frustration over the way they were represented, and concern that the exposure could lead to lawsuits against them in the future.
