The combination of a religious Muslim and an avid snowboarder may conjure a strange image for many people. However, this specific image is a reflection of a more general reality: there are Muslims living and growing up in the West who are creating a unique identity for themselves. Muslim Boarders is a short documentary that shatters stereotypes by portraying an interesting fusion of Western culture and the Islamic world.
The film features Muslim snowboarders who strive to maintain a balance between American youth culture and their Islamic identity. Muslim Boarders is an important observation of what growing up in America is like for a group who finds themselves both inside and outside of the dominant culture.
