Halim and Mina run a traditional caftan store in one of Morocco’s oldest medinas. To keep up with the demands of impatient customers, they hire a young apprentice named Youssef. While Youssef is dedicated and eager to learn the art of embroidery and tailoring from Halim, Mina soon realizes how much her husband is moved by the presence of the young man.

Winner of the FIPRESCI Prize at Cannes, The Blue Caftan is as elegant and finely crafted as any of the beautiful garments in the film. Filmmaker Maryam Touzani weaves her nuanced script with fine performances to create a marriage filled with tenderness and grace.
