At the intersection of non-fiction filmmaking and experimental media art practices, Mozaffari's main interest is in creating poetic narratives that are candid and intimate portrayals of real-life subjects/experiences. She has exhibited widely in the U.S. and abroad, including video-dumbo 2013 in New York, Rencontres Internationales in Paris, Berlin, Madrid, Australian Cinematheque in Queensland Gallery of Modern Art as well as festivals in Canada, Tehran, Poland, San Francisco, Switzerland, Sweden, Berlin, Norway, and New York. Originally from Tehran, Iran, Mozaffari received a Bachelor of Arts from San Francisco State University and a Master of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
