You probably haven't heard of Tarzan and Arab, identical twin brothers from Gaza who, until recently, had never done what you likely do on a regular basis: go to the movies. There are no cinemas in the Hamas-controlled Gaza, something that makes the twins's story that much more amazing. Tarzan and Arab -- real names: Ahmed and Mohamed Abu Nasser -- are aspiring filmmakers who have already won awards for their short film. "As artists we are restricted by living in a conservative and tough community," said Arab to the Guardian UK in August. "Let's be realistic. Our life is under siege, under control. People don't have time for art. They spend all their time looking for crumbs. They say, 'What use is art? Art will not give you bread.'"
