Bahman Farmanara's career as a filmmaker in Iran provides a unique example of the effects of the revolution on filmmaking, because he was an established filmmaker before the revolution, continued making films until his exile during the revolution, and returned to Iran years later and began making films again. As a result, Farmanara has experienced a variety of different stages in the evolution of Iran's filmmaking environment. Smell of Camphor, Fragrance of Jasmine, Farmanara's first film made after the revolution, attests to Farmanara's experiences with his exile and return home. In doing so it establishes rhizomatic group affiliations, the potential for the construction of an extra-national community.
