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 the Austin Premiere & Fundraiser to learn about the remarkable spiritual exchange between the Sultan and the Saint, and the great risks they took for peace

UPF films are all on Muslim themes.They have been seen by tens of millions in the USA and globally with over 85% positive reviews. UPF also consults with many Holywood TV shows on Muslim characters and storylines, including The Charmichael ShowThe Simpsons, BonesGrey's Anatomy and many others. We will show clips from our Hollywood work and also share clips used to educate political leaders, Justice and State Department officials, as well as U.S. policy makers. UPF will be raising money for its new project at this event.
