Taqwacore: The Birth Of Punk Islam
DVD - $16.00
Michael Muhammad Knight's 2003 classic novel "The Taqwacores," served as the base and inspiration for the real-life Muslim movement within the punk/hardcore scene. On the heels of the recently-released fictional movie based on the book comes this true-life documentary detailing the bands involved in Muslim punk's inception, and the ensuing U.S. tour that follows, with Knight there every step of the way. An amazing first hand account of this nascent sub-scene that is all at once compelling, controversial, and even contradictory.
"As a mashup of piety and politics, hardcore music and anarchy, the Muslim punk movement makes the Sex Pistols look like Fleetwood Mac..."
