Mahammad Fathy Kalfat
MF Kalfat was raised in the Egyptian Nuba and moved to Cairo in 2003 where he's been mainly working as web editor (currently of a forthcoming film web-zine in Arabic) and translator (currently of a 19th-century orientalistic travelogue). Apart from personal blogging and occasional poetry, he writes about music, sex and cultural politics, and contributed to an Arab media activism youth camp for 3 years. His most recently curated film program was about Arab civil wars. For this publication he originally wrote a much longer biography that had to be cut down and all the humor had to go.
