His first feature, 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 US, 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, about South American shepherds who are recruited to work in the American west, and was acquired by PBS for its America ReFramed series. Gaucho del Norte made its TV premiere in January and its festival premiere a month later at the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival.
Sofian and Andrés are currently at work on another feature ‘The Interpreter’ for which they received the MacArthur Documentary Grant.
