Mohammed Altaj

Mohammed Altaj is a filmmaker and photographer who specialises in visual journalism and has worked with several channels and producers before and after the war in Sudan. Since 2022, he has partnered with Dialectic Films as a film trainer for youth development projects and has worked on local entertainment programs. Between 2019 and 2020, he was one of the organisers of the Taharqa Festival, a youth cinema festival in Sudan. In 2020, he co-founded Dub Production House.

Mohammed Altaj is working on a short film for his residency and is developing photography that tells the story of Sudan. Half the images comprise the “beauty gallery” that explores the aesthetic language of Sudan. The other half of the images tell the story of the revolution. His photographic style is influenced by his background in engineering.
