Oscar nominated documentary '5 Broken Cameras' takes on conflict in West Bank

The Oscar-nominated documentary "5 Broken Cameras" was considered a real contender for the award this year. While it didn't win the gold, the filmmakers are winning many other awards and critical acclaim.

The movie began when Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat wanted to document the 2005 birth of his son. In the process, he spent six years documenting local resistance to Israeli settlements and the construction of an Israeli wall separating farmers from their lands and olive groves. The title refers to the damage his equipment suffered over the time it took to produce the film.

Guy Davidi, the film's co-director, talks with Soledad O'Brien on "Starting Point" this morning about the controversy surrounding the documentary.
