The Taqwacores Director Eyad Zahra via skype following screening.

Based on the novel by Michael Muhammad Knight, The Taqwacores (Eyad Zahra, 83 min.) deals with the complexities of being young and Muslim in modern-day America. Yusef, a first-generation Pakistani engineering student, moves off-campus with a group of Muslim punks in Buffalo, New York. His new "un-orthodox" housemates soon introduce him to Taqwacore—a hardcore, Muslim punk rock scene that only exists out west, which challenge his faith and ideologies. Named one of the top 10 films at Sundance 2010 by Time Out London. Director Eyad Zahra will join us via skype folling the 8pm screening.

Amid/In WNY 2015 - Part 3


Amid/In WNY 2015 is a conversationally-derived casual survey of the art of our region at this moment. It does not include everyone and, in the end, will not include everyone. It's not planned as some all-encompassing, omnibus survey. We have used the term "studio trolling" to describe our process and that's an apt description. Adrian Bertolone, Denton Crawford, Flatsitter, Pam Glick, Bethany Krull, Evelyne Leblanc-Roberge, Ian McCrohan, Allen Topolski. Curated by Kyle Butler, John Massier, Rebecca Wing
