To Jozani as a thoughtful craftsman who collaborates to bring an undeniable style to filmmaking, cinema is an industry rather than a form of art.
He says, “Cinema is rather an industry. Production is an industry. Production is a joint thing.”
On part of his talk with ifilm, Jozani refers to the fact that when talking about a project, everything that occurs offscreen to facilitate the production has to be taken into account.
“I do not agree very much with the idea that a film belongs to its director. A director is the sea captain. It is not fair to say a film belongs to, for example, Jozani while a big number of people have helped a film to be made.”
Talking in a modest manner, Jozani has also said that, “I cannot claim to be an artist. I also do not accept to call ourselves artist. People are the one to recognize someone as an artist over the course of time.”
