About the Movie
95 minutes. Director: Qasim “Q” Basir
Starring Evan Ross, Danny Glover, Nia Long and Roger Guenveur Smith, MOOZ-lum is the story of, Tariq Mahdi (Ross), a young African-American Muslim who represents the first large generation of Muslims born and raised in this country.
Pulled between his strict Muslim upbringing and the unrestricted social life he’s never experienced, Tariq Mahdi enters college in a state of confusion. New relationships with Muslims and non-Muslims alike challenge his already shaken ideals, and estrangement from his mother and sister troubles him. With the help of new friends, family and mentors, he begins to find himself and open up to an Islam he hasn’t been exposed to. But when the attacks of 9/11 happen without warning, he is forced to face his past and make the biggest decisions of his life.
