About the Film

In the city of East Orange, New Jersey, a casket shop stands on the corner of N. 15th and William Streets. Inside, laboring amid the sawdust and the long pine boxes, casket makers work with mentors in the Islamic burial tradition. Countering tumultuous home lives and the dangerous undertow of the streets, they have found a way, through the rituals of death, of teaching their young charges to embrace life. Two Gods tells the story of Hanif, a Muslim casket maker and ritual body washer who takes two young men under his wing to teach them how to live better lives.
