Watch the full 5 Broken Cameras documentary on the Israeli occupation 

Emad Burnat, the director of this Oscar-nominated documentary was detained by immigration officials at LAX this morning, not even accepting his invitation as a reason to let him through. 

"It’s nothing I’m not already used to," he said. "When you live under occupation, with no rights, this is a daily occurrence."

Burnat, his wife & 8-year-old son were detained for nearly two hours before officials let them go.

"All the Palestinians get the same treatment in our country, in our home and in different countries," Burnat said. "So it’s not normal for a human to be treated like this for all our lives, or for our kids. So I am seeking for peace and for freedom for my kids. And I want them to be treated like humans, not because we are Palestinians that we should get bad treatment or different treatment."
