Pratap’s practice embraces a range of documentary film and photographic approaches. Much of his early film work is in observational broadcast documentary modes, with twenty-five films for BBC 2 and Channel 4. Other films are independent commissions for the British Council or research-supported projects for gallery spaces such as Modern Art Oxford. Many explore the dynamics of inter-cultural communication, conceiving documentary as a crucible in which people of radically different perspectives, cultures and politics come into relation, for example with the Truth & Reconciliation Commission of the new South Africa.

He filmed in the aftermath of many moments of tension or emergence from conflict including in Rwanda, Northern Ireland, Aboriginal Australia and across the Islamic world.
Pratap is interested in cultivating pluralised film spaces through which newer understandings in inter-cultural documentary can evolve. He writes on practical and philosophical questions of documentary film in a number of book chapters, academic and journalistic articles exploring questions of documentary ethics, peace and conflict and post-colonial emergence. Pratap is a Reader and Course Director of MA Documentary Film at the London College of Communication.
