Trailerama: The Taqwacores

Being Muslim doesn’t mean having to strap a bomb onto yourself and stroll into the nearest Tel Aviv cafe. In fact, Islam encompasses as many extremes as any other religion. The Muslim punk subculture known as Taqwacore is seen through the eyes of a collegiate believer–and it turns out faith in Allah doesn’t preclude sex, silly haircuts and kicking against the pricks. A riot grrrl in a burka should be worth the price of admission. Director Eyad Zahra adapted Michael Muhammad Knight novel. Screening at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
