"Smell of Camphor, Fragrance of Jasmine"
Bahman Farmanara
Iran 2000, 93 min., 35 mm, Engl. subtitles


For two decades, the ageing filmmaker Bahman Farjami was not allowed to make any more films. He hits on the idea of making a film about his own funeral. To his great surprise, it gets past the censors. Farmanara turns this semi-autobiographical story into a surrealistic, comical dream about hitherto unknown sides to Iranian society.
