SOFIAN KHAN (DIRECTOR, CINEMATOGRAPHER, PRODUCER)
Sofian is the founder of Capital K Pictures, a New York-based production house. His short work has appeared on Field of Vision, The Fader, Al Jazeera, PBS, Fusion, The Atlantic and Huffington Post. He is a 2016 MacArthur Documentary Grant recipient for his film THE INTERPRETERS (2018), completed with support from ITVS, about Iraqi and Afghan interpreters who worked with U.S. forces. Sofian’s first feature doc THE DICKUMENTARY (2014) — a definitive history of the penis from its evolution millions of years ago to today — was acquired by Breaking Glass Pictures in the U.S., and made its festival premiere at the Atlanta Film Festival. His second feature GAUCHO DEL NORTE (2015), was released shortly after, co-directed with producing partner Andrés Caballero. The film was a Jerome Foundation grant recipient, following South American shepherds who are recruited to work in the American west. It premiered at the 2015 Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, and subsequently aired on PBS’ America ReFramed series. Currently, Sofian is producing AN ACT OF WORSHIP, based on a short film about the recent travel ban that he co-directed for Field of Vision. Sofian is a member of the Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective.
