Picturehouse drops a new for Cairo Conspiracy, the film formerly known as Boy From Heaven, set in Egypt.
The film initially premiered at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, where it won the Best Screenplay award and opened in the US, now it will release in UK and other places.
The story is about a devout young man named Adam, the son of a fisherman, who is offered the ultimate privilege to study at the prestigious Al-Azhar University in Cairo, the epicenter of power for the Sunni Islam religion.
Shortly after his arrival in Cairo, the university’s highest ranking religious leader, the Grand Imam, suddenly dies and Adam becomes a pawn in the ruthless power struggle between Eqypt’s religious and political elite.
The film stars Tawfeek Barhom, Fares Fares, Mohammad Bakri, Makram Khoury, Mehdi Dehbi, Moe Ayoub, Sherwan Haji, and Ahmed Lassaoui.
The film is a gripping, brutally honest look at corruption and how greedy, vicious people will do anything to control and manipulate the world – even in iconic institutions like Al-Azhar University.
Helmed by Tarik Saleh, produced by Fredrik Zander and Kristina Åberg, co-produced by Misha Jaari, Mark Lwoff, and Alexandre Mallet-Guy. The film releases on April 14th, 2023!
