Naz and Maalik
U.S. Dramatic Features
(USA, 2014, 86 min)
DCP, HDCAM
Directed By: Jay Dockendorf
Screenwriter: Jay Dockendorf
In this striking and lean debut, writer-director Jay Dockendorf proves himself an exciting new voice in independent cinema. Observational, intimate and flooded with the sweet undercurrent of two boys falling in love, this SXSW discovery confronts the challenge of keeping secrets when you're young, black, gay and Muslim. After their first night together, Naz and Maalik wander the streets of Brooklyn in a giddy summer haze of romance. But an undercover FBI agent flips their world upside-down after she incorrectly assumes their involvement in what appears to be an illegal gun trade. What begins as a sweet ode to love, transforms into a serious and timely study of racism and religion in everyday America.
