Cairo Conspiracy

From the director of the political drama, The Nile Hilton Incident, shown in the Society’s 2018/19 season, comes an exciting new conspiracy thriller set on a Cairo campus. The young son of a poor fisherman gains a place at the prestigious Al-Azhar University, the centre of power of Sunni Islam. However, he soon becomes a pawn in the conflict between Egypt’s religious and political elites. Also known as Boy from Heaven, the film won the Best Screenplay award for Tarik Saleh at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival.
