His first feature-length documentary is called “MADANIYA.”
Subahi received a Cultures of Resistance Award (CoR Award) and is using the award for his documentary film series project, “Sudanawiya,” which takes viewers on a journey to all those cultural expressions and identities that are uniquely Sudanese. The award is supporting a workshop in Kadugli, Kordofan, for a group of local youth and artists on scriptwriting and filming, which will lead to two short films in the series.
