The Taqwacores

The Minneapolis - St. Paul International Film Festival is in town. On the recommendation of a more arts-oriented friend of mine, I saw a film called The Taqwacores last night. Taqwacore is the name given to the--stay with me here--Muslim punk scene.

At its heart, the movie is about each character's struggle to define his particular brand of Islam. It's a story you don't need to be a young Muslim to appreciate. If you can find some way to do so, I highly recommend seeing it.
