“The Blue Caftan,” tells the story of Mina and her closeted gay husband Halim, who run a caftan store in Morocco. When they hire a young man as an apprentice, Mina begins to suspect Halim may be taking too much interest in him. The film had its world premiere at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival and has been selected by Morocco as their official submission for Best International Feature at this year’s Academy Awards. Director/Writer Maryam Touzani was kind enough to spend a few minutes talking with us about her work on the film, which you can listen to below. Thank you, and enjoy!
