Latest Update May 22, 2021
Event description

Hanif is a Muslim casket maker and ritual body washer in Newark who takes young men- Naz and Furquan- under his wing to teach them how to live better lives. Hardship comes in all of their lives and Hanif fears he has failed as a mentor and begins to fall into a downward spiral. During each of their darkest moments, they take what they’ve learned from their pasts and from each other to pull through and find their purpose. Two Gods is a poetic journey and reflection on coming of age and navigating grief, loss, and healing through the lens of mentorship and faith. Director ZeShawn Ali. 82 minutes
