A Film Premiere for Unity Productions Foundation's new docudrama.


"The Sultan and the Saint"

Sir Ian and Nancy Turbott Auditorium - Building EE, Room G.19

Western Sydney University (Parramatta South Campus)

Tickets: $10.00

During the Crusades, Saint Francis of Assisi risked his life by walking across enemy lines to meet the Sultan of Egypt, the Muslim ruler 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 the Columbus Premiere to learn about the remarkable spiritual exchange between the Sultan and the Saint, and the great risks they took for peace
