Hamoody Jaafar is a Detroit-based commercial and narrative film director driven by a desire to challenge stereotypes within our culture and tell underrepresented stories. With realism, minority experiences, and mental health at the forefront of his passions, Jaafar credits his upbringing in working-class suburbs just outside of Detroit for exposing him to a spectrum of socioeconomic, racial, and religious experiences that further nurtured his commitment to dynamic storytelling.
