Director Biography – Chozy Aiyub, Malik J Ali

Chozy Aiyub knew that one day he will make his way to the United States and become a star. Born and raised in Palestine, at a young age he was already involved in performing arts, creating film and music since his father had a very famous band/dance group called “Al-Kawakeb” – translates from Arabic to English as “The Planets”.

Chozy Aiyub was always involved in stage performances, dance and music. Growing up, he got to learn how to play the piano, guitar and drums by ear from being around his father.

At the age of 13, his father bought him his first video camera. That is when Chozy Aiyub began creating short films and casting his friends and neighbors as actors. He would also act in his short films as well. That is when he realized his passion for acting and directing.

In 2015, one of my friends cast me in one of his films titled “BREATHE” and that is when I had my first speaking role in a film. Since then, I caught the acting bug and been taking classes and working on my craft.

Today, I am writing and directing a lot of my own films instead of waiting on the industry to cast people that look like me in their projects and I love it.

Director Statement

“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”
~ Nelson Mandela
