Trondheim's back with hard core documentary screenings

Taqwacore

Posters of a flamboyant mohawk, a stack of flyers and free give-outs of small plastic cups of popcorn in the hallway outside the lectures halls of the university brought in attention for Cinema Politica Trondheim's opening screening this semester yesterday. A small crowd gathered in the chosen auditorium to watch the videodocumented story of the phenomenon Taqwacore, the birth of punk Islam. The mood was energetic, the music loud and the audience went berserk and everyone threw themselves at each other in a state of total benevolant chaos... or wait, maybe that was in the film.  

Though in a calm and behaved way, our audience really seemed to be pleased and entertained by the first documentary screening of the semester. It was, in other words, a promising start of another semester of quality documentary film screenings in Trondheim, and we are looking forward to follow up with the rest of our program!
