Cairo Conspiracy

Date Shown

1st May 2024

‘Cairo Conspiracy’ (2022) the latest political thriller from director Tarik Saleh. Adam, a fisherman’s son is offered a place at the Al-Azhar Islamic school in Cairo, the power base of Sunni Islam. His family see this as a gift from God, but when the school’s Grand Imam dies, Adam unknowingly becomes involved in a ruthless power struggle between Egypt’s religious and political elite.

Anyone who has seen Saleh’s previous thriller ‘The Nile Hilton Incident’ (2017) will know what to expect, a fast-paced political drama, tension-rich and high on crime and corruption, so ‘Cairo Conspiracy’ follows in this vein whilst showing how the politicisation of religion is all too frequently used by the corrupt powerful. Essential, intelligent viewing.

‘A searing political thriller brimming with tension’              The Playlist website,
‘A  high –tension espionage thriller’               The Times.
