Swedish-Egyptian filmmaker Tarek Saleh has created a remarkably stylish mix of exciting conspiracy thrillers and sophisticated characterisation. With memorable character interpretation from, among others, Palestinian Tawfeek Barhom and Swedish favourite Fares Fares, he takes us head on into a power struggle in an environment rarely seen on film.

Boy from Heaven, alternatively known as Cairo Conspiracy, premiered and won the award for best screenplay at last year's Cannes festival. Since then, the film has been chosen to be Sweden's candidate for the Academy Award for Best International Film, and has been screened at film festivals around the world.
