Taqwacore: The Birth of Punk Islam

Loading...
Taqwacore chronicles the nascent Muslim punk rock movement in America. It was inspired by the work of Michael Knight, a convert to Islam who wrote the novel The Taqwacores (a term combining the Muslim concept of God consciousness with hardcore punk). The film follows Knight and a variety of young Muslim musicians on tour through the U.S. before bringing their music to Lahore, breaking taboos along the way-- from staging a lesbian thrash act at an Islamic convention to stomping on the American flag, or as Knight explains, giving the finger to both sides.
