Non-news of the day: Palestinian director Emad Burnat detained 90 minutes at LAX on his way to the Academy Awards

Burnat's film Five Broken Cameras has been nominated in the Best Documentary Feature category. While in detention Burnat texted Michael Moore for help. Moore tweeted about it and all was good. The immigration folks hadn't been briefed on what an official Academy Award nomination looks like.

BTW we recently added Five Broken Cameras to the Media Services collection so come on by and check it out.  DVD 10914
