Taqwacore: The Birth Of Punk Islam (2009)

  
Format:  Taqwacore: The Birth Of Punk Islam DVD 
 
 
Is there such a thing as God-fearing punk music? Welcome to the world of taqwacore, America's Muslim-centric punk rock movement! Drawn from the rebellion of a young Islamist who rejected the beliefs of his white supremacist father and the novel he wrote to chronicle that separation, the music of taqwacore represents a wide-ranging assault on traditional sensibilities that is illustrated by this documentary. 82 min. Soundtrack: English, Punjabi, Arabic, and Urdu; Subtitles: English.
