Salahshoor Passes Away

The veteran Iranian filmmaker Farajollah Salahshoor passed away in Tehran on Saturday (Feb. 27) at the age of 63 years. He had lung cancer.
Salahshoor was hospitalized at Baqiyatallah Hospital in mid-January for lung failure and 10 days ago his doctors said that his condition was critical.
An actor, screenwriter and film director and producer, he had three notable TV series in his resume. In 1993 he made ‘Job, the Prophet’ on the life of the Prophet Job. Salahshoor wrote and directed the series and also played the lead character as Job who is beset with horrendous disasters that take away all that he holds dear, including his offspring, his health, and his property.
Five years later in 1998, he directed ‘The Men of Angelos’ an account of “the people of the cave”. Salahshoor returned to the state-owned IRIB ten years later in 2008 with a hit series ‘Prophet Joseph’ in which he was the writer, director and producer.
The series received generally positive reviews not only in Iran but in the Islamic world as well, and it was dubbed in Arabic, Urdu, Azeri, and Hindi and broadcast in several countries.
