About MOOZ-lum
If Muslims ever felt their voice in the West and America wasn't being heard, then MOOZ-lum is a riveting film that is stepping in the right direction. Not only does it confront the current anti-Islamic attitude in America post-9/11 head-on, it reveals the struggles faced within the Muslim community.

MOOZ-lum takes movie goers into the life of Tariq, played by Evan Ross — the eldest son in a Muslim-American family who struggles to balance their needs within the Islamic value system throughout the film— as he overcomes the life-long negative experiences he's had with the faith during his first year of college in 2001. The faith of his sister Taqua, played by newcomer Kimberley Drummond, his Muslim roommate Hamza (Kunal Sharma), and his girlfriend Iman (Summer Bishil) are also put to the test when non-Muslim students on campus react to the 9/11 attacks.

The family struggle between Tariq's father Hassan (Roger Guenveur Smith) and mother Safiyah (Nia Long) is a sub-narrative that reveals how conflict of religious conservatism can divide a Muslim-American family living in a Christian-secular society. Each character successfully highlights multiple facets within the faith from a communal, family, and personal standpoint because it's based on a true story.
