Naz and Maalik is the story of two Muslim black youths who also happen to be closeted gay men, and whose antics have drawn the attention of a local FBI agent. The film unfolds casually as we follow Naz and Maalik and learn the pieces of their story as we go.

The film takes a very simple approach to a complicated subject, instead of hammering you over the head with a myriad of social issues, director Jay Dockendorf lets the film play out naturally over the course of an entire day. There are no dire moments of senseless violence or sudden acts of heinous hatred – this is a film meant to leave you with your own thoughts on the story.

The film is available Jan 26th on VOD and DVD. Listen now to our interview with Jay Dockendorf.
