An Appalachian Summer Festival: The Blue Caftan

June 27, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


The theme of this year’s series is “Through a Female Lens”

“Throughout the world, the male-dominated field of film directing is slowly changing. Women are writing, directing and producing more films than ever before. Our series will highlight four outstanding examples of a feminine perspective being brought to cinematic storytelling.” — Dale Pollock

All films in the series feature an introduction and a post-film Q&A with curator Dale Pollock.


The Blue Caftan

  • In Arabic with English subtitles
  • France/Morocco/Belgium/Denmark, unrated, directed by Maryam Touzani, 2022, drama, 124 minutes
  • Halim and Mina run a traditional caftan store in one of Morocco’s oldest medinas. In order to keep up with the commands of the demanding customers, they hire Youssef.
