Masoud Jafari Jozani

Masoud Djafari Djozani (born 10 December 1948 in Malayer, Iran) (in Persian: مسعود جعفری جوزانی) is a film director, screenwriter and film producer. He received an M.A. in cinema from the San Francisco State University (1977).[1] In his feature films, he generally deals with heroic subjects in the natural environment with a historical and epic tone. Some of his films were awarded local prizes. His 2009 film In the Wind's Eye, the conclusion to his television series Dar Chashm-e Baad, was partially filmed in Los Angeles, making it the first Iranian production to be shot in the United States since the 1979 Iranian Revolution. With a budget of US$12 million, it is also among the most expensive films in Iranian history.[2][3][4][5]

He is the brother of producer Fatolah Jafari-Jozani and the father of actress Sahar Jafari Jozani.
