This category is the only one where the contenders do not represent a country. So no, "5 Broken Cameras" does not represent Israel, or Palestine for that matter. With that it is a pity that the writer did not mention that this documentary was made with large financial support from Israeli institutions using our tax money. So whilst I understand the embarrassment of the Palestinian maker about this, it is only fair to add that it wouldn't have been made at all without Israeli financial support. As an Israeli I am proud of both documentaries which would not have been made in any Arab country or, indeed, in any other democracy.
