The Taqwacores Details


Director [[Performer~P645106~Eyad Zahra~eyadzahra]] teams with writer [[Performer~P649114~Michael Muhammad Knight~michaelmuhammadknight]] for this drama about a Pakistani-American engineering student who falls in with a tightly knit group of Muslim punk-rockers. Attending school in Buffalo, NY, college student Yusef moves into a house occupied by Muslim punks, who introduce him to Taqwacore -- an emerging scene that's gradually gaining momentum across the country. The more Yusef learns about Taqwacore, the more he begins to question his own faith. This film is inspired by [[Performer~P649114~Knight~michaelmuhammadknight]]'s novel of the same name, which was originally distributed via free Xerox copies in true punk fashion. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
