“Whenever you think you know where Maryam Touzani’s entrancing drama The Blue Caftan is going, she blindsides you with a fierce emotional wallop.” —

Flick Ford speaks with director Maryam Touzani about her most recent film The Blue Caftan which is screening now in select cinemas! The film won the International Critics’ Prize at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival after being selected for Morocco’s Best International Feature at the Oscars.
