Telling accurate stories about struggles in Gaza

Hamas recently premiered its first film in Gaza. Blogger Lina Al Sharif attended the screening and wrote the following observations:

It’s not the best movie I have seen, but it’s a movie from Gaza. Putting in consideration all the circumstances, the resources and facilities that are needed to produce a movie with such plot; the outcome is relatively good given the situation and the siege which has been imposed on Gaza for almost two and a half years now. The actors and the actresses are all from Gaza. Sadly, the same Resala report mentioned that four of the actors were actually killed in the recent war on Gaza. There were some troubles in the sound mixing; some of the dialogue was not audible along with the sound effect. Moreover, the performance of the actors was not that good.…  Yet, the whole outcome must be appreciated as it came amid hard times Gaza is going through.
