I've attached the image. Apologies for the terminology confusion; our Executive Producer threw the name in the ring, and we all just adopted it.

Updated information:

The footage is actually old DV material, still PAL. We are working in a 1920x1080 timeline.

It seems like these problem parts of the 1920x1080 image would show in projection and on HD flatscreen TV's.

So, some people here in NYC have actually recommended that we crop the whole movie. Our editor is trying 0.5 crop in FCP for the bottom and 0.2 for the top. But we want to confirm that this is an acceptable fix for broadcast and for theatrical projection. Otherwise, we'd have to blow up just those shots (DV, approx. 5-6 minutes in a 57-minute movie) 2-3%.

I've attached an image, but it's really hard to tell from a still image. At the bottom of the image, you can see the width of the stripe in the white wall where the bad part is slightly brighter. It's also happening on the top, and you can tell at the right of her head scarf.

Thank you all for your advice so far!
