The Sultan and the Saint: A New Film Project by UPF from Unity Productions Foundation on Vimeo.
The Atlanta Interfaith Leaders Forum is sponsoring the March 26 showing of this 60 minute film on one of the great, lost stories from history with a timely message for today. During the Crusades, Saint Francis of Assisi risked his life by walking across enemy lines to meet the Sultan of Egypt, the Muslim ruler Al-Malik al-Kamil. This remarkable encounter, and the commitment to peace of the two men behind it, changed the relationship between Muslims and Christians for the better. This wonderful story is told with detailed scholarship and dramatic reenactment. A discussion period follows the film.
Please join us on March 26 at 4:00 p.m. at Atlanta Unity for this informative and inspirational partner event.
