Eleven-year-old Sophie (newcomer Frankie Corio) and her father, Calum (BAFTA winner Paul Mescal, Normal People), vacation at a Turkish beach resort in the late 1990s. They swim, play pool, and enjoy each other’s company; they’re partners in crime. Calum is the best version of himself when he is with Sophie. Sophie feels like anything is possible when Calum is around. When Sophie is on her own, she navigates new friendships and experiences. As they enjoy their time together, layers of melancholy and mystery ripple through Calum’s behaviour. Twenty years later, the memories take on new meaning as Sophie tries to reconcile the father she knew with the man she didn’t.

- Directed by: Maryam Touzani
- Cast: Lubna Azabal, Saleh Bakri, Ayoub Missioui
18 TBC - "Writer-director Maryam Touzani’s follow-up to her acclaimed 2019 debut Adam, The Blue Caftan is a rich, complex, slow-burn drama that screened in Un Certain Regard at Cannes this year.
Halim (Saleh Bakri) and Mina (Lubna Azabal) run a caftan shop in the historic Salé medina, producing exquisitely finished hand-sewn garments. Married for some time, their union nevertheless contains a secret which must be kept quiet in a strictly conservative country like Morocco, and when new circumstances (including the arrival of a young apprentice) arise, so too do new emotional challenges that threaten to upset the careful calibration of their lives.
Crafted with elegant economy, Touzani’s film is sensual, thoughtful and intensely moving, navigating the melancholy of the film’s central situations with a keen and 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."
