Columbus Premier of Sultan and the Saint
November 12, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm$5
CAIR-Columbus, Noor Islamic Cultural Center, and Unity Productions Foundations are pleased to announce the film premier of Unity Productions Foundation’s new docudrama:
“The Sultan and the Saint”
Join us for the Columbus premiere of UPF’s latest film at
1071 Gemini Place
Columbus, OH 43240
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, sucked the venom out of the Crusades and changed the relationship between Muslims and Christians for the better.
Featuring dramatic reenactments and renowned scholarship, this amazing story is brought to life. Scholars interviewed include Michael Cusato (St. Bonaventure University), Sr. Kathy Warren (Sisters of St. Francis), Suleiman Mourad (Smith College), Homayra Ziad (Institute for Christian & Jewish Studies), Paul Moses (The Saint and the Sultan), and others.
Join us for this premiere in Columbus to learn about the remarkable spiritual exchange between the Sultan and the Saint, and the great risks they took for peace.
