Jeyhun Jamil oglu Mirzayev (Jeyhun Jamal) was born in Abdal-Gulabli village of Aghdam. He studied at the directing faculty of the Azerbaijan State Art Institute and in Moscow. Almost 35 years of his 48 years of life were related to cinema. He was only 11 years old when he created the character of Shikhali’s son in the film “Meeting”. When he was 12 years old, he was invited to “Stepmother”. He worked in various professions in the film studio: assistant, director’s assistant, actor, director. He also had a strong ability to parody. He once managed to imitate the voice and form of speech of the person he was talking to. Even the buzzing sound in the title of “Mozalan” belonged to him. His last film was “Faryad”. He could not see this movie himself. Merciless death did not allow him to attend the premiere of the film. Jeyhun, who felt sick during the shooting in the studio, was barely brought home. The role of Miguel in the film Kompanyeros (1962, directed by Yuri Romanovsky, Aleksandr Milyukov, Mikhail Tereshenko / Ukraine), the role of Manolo in the film Black Seagull (1962, directed by Grigory Koltunov / Russia), “Snipers” (1985, directed by foreign producers) Bolotbek Shamshiyev / Kazakhstan) was shot as Salayev in the film. He shot the plots of “Black and White” (1982, N241) and “Reaksiya” (1986, N284) for the Russian “Fitil” film magazine. He drew plots for the “Mozalan” satirical film magazine of the “Azerbaijanfilm” film studio. He was the artistic director of “Mozalan” for some time. Jeyhun Mirzayev died in 1993.
