The Blue Caftan


We are proud to co-present THE BLUE CAFTAN on Friday February 10th at Film Forum in NYC.
AFMI’s Director of Film Programming, Yasmina Tawil, will introduce the film.  

The Blue Caftan opened the Arab Film Festival last year and was also shortlisted for the 2023 Academy Award® for International Feature Film. Don’t miss it!

“Stunning… a film about the many different kinds of love — romantic, platonic, familial, sexual — and the ways they can’t help but intersect at complicated moments in our lives… Working with an intricacy that rivals that of the craftsman at the center of her film, [Touzani] crafts a surprisingly warm story that subverts expectations at almost every turn. Delightful… a reminder that each human soul is worth a lifetime of exploration to someone. Remarkably sweet and life affirming. Anchored by three remarkable performances and a beautiful script that never wastes a line, Maryam Touzani made a film that oozes love from almost every frame.” – Christian Zilko, IndieWire
