Palestinian film-maker Emad Burnat addresses the Mangere event flanked by Kia Ora Gaza chair Roger Fowler and Lydia Sosene, chairperson of the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board, who chaired the South Auckland meeting.

Emad Burnat’s film and talk was greeted with two standing ovations from the packed out audience at the Mangere Arts Centre – the first public event of his NZ tour.

NZ Palestine Solidarity Network & Kia Ora Gaza are co-hosting a string of events throughout the country, screening Emad’s award-winning documentary “5 Broken Cameras” which graphically portrays the harsh reality of life for Palestinians in his village in the West Bank. There will be a Q&A session with Emad after each screening.

See the side bar of this website for details of Emad Burnat’s main public events in Hamilton, Wellington, Dunedin & Christchurch. A unique opportunity – not to be missed.

    Thanks for that Roger. Is Emad Burnat scheduled to speak again in Auckland. You have done well to get him here – and successfully it seems!

      No more Auckland events unfortunately – he is now in Sydney after touring NZ with his stunning movie.
