It’s set in Buffalo, but this movie about Muslim punks was shot in Cleveland by a former Clevelander. Eyad Zahra’s first feature revolves around a group of students who turn their house into a mosque by day and a club at night, when Muslim punk songs fill the room. Essentially, it’s a coming-of-age story about being a young Muslim in America with a badass soundtrack. Zahra will field questions after the screenings. He’ll also take part in a panel discussion about young kids and religion on Thursday.
