GAZA-MAKING MOVIES

"Losing Schalit," the second film to be made in the territory, tackles the 2006 capture of Israeli soldier Gilad Schalit by gunmen allied with the Islamic militant Hamas movement. Like the first film, about a senior militant commander, it received financing from Gaza's Hamas government. By Ibrahim Barzak. UPCOMING: 837 words by 2:30 a.m., photos and video.
