Gadalla Gubara (1921-2008) was a Sudanese filmmaker. Over five decades, he produced more than 100 documentaries and four feature films. He is considered the first African filmmaker and has been a pioneer of African cinema. His daughter, Sarah Gubara, is considered Sudan's first female film director.
Gadalla Gubara was still working at the age of eighty-eight - one of the pioneers of cinema in Africa. He lost his sight at the age of 80 years but still continued to film life in Sudan as no one before him. In 2006 he received the 2006 Award for Excellence for his career at the Africa Movie Academy Awards.
