Based around the plot of the superb novel of the same name by Michael Muhammed Knight, The Taqwacores follows the exploits, hardships, and revelry of a group of Muslim punk rockers living in a group house in Buffalo, NY. The main character, a first-generation Pakistani-American named Yusef, goes through a number of changes throughout the film, including challenging his long-held beliefs and religious faith. An amazing look at the controversial intersection of organized religion and punk rock, and the often uncomfortable parallels and discrepancies between the two!
"Simmers with raw immediacy and seething humor...sure to appeal to fans of Trainspotting, Fight Club, and anything by Gus Van Sant"
