He ran the first film studio in Sudan, and was the co-founder of both the Pan-African Federation of Filmmakers FEPACI and the FESPACO festival (Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso). As a filmmaker, he documented his country's post-colonial era in over fifty documentaries, educational films, shorts, and features following the independence of Sudan in 1956. Here we will be screening two films he made about Sudan's capital city: KHARTOUM and SONGS OF KHARTOUM, which represented attempts to create an African response to the city symphony genre by capturing disparate images of daily life in Khartoum and setting it to music. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=349132 Anthology Film Archives Anthology Film Archives
