Batcombe Film Society presents: ‘The Blue Caftan’ (dir. Maryam Touzani/2022/122mins/12A)

January 19 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm

“The Blue Caftan is a rich, complex, slow-burn drama. Halim (Saleh Bakri) and Mina (Lubna Azabal) run a caftan shop in the historic Salé medina in Morocco, producing exquisitely finished hand-sewn garments. Married for some time, their union nevertheless contains a secret. When Mina falls ill and a young apprentice arrives, the couple face emotional challenges that threaten to upset the careful calibration of their lives. The film is sensual, thoughtful and intensely moving and the director has an authentic eye for physical and emotional details and the intricacies of individual relationships. Brilliantly acted, it’s an overwhelmingly tender character study and an investigation into a country’s relationship with tradition and modernity”
