The Taqwacores Details


Director Eyad Zahra teams with writer Michael Muhammad Knight 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 Knight's novel of the same name, which was originally distributed via free Xerox copies in true punk fashion. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
