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.
