Description

The Sultan and the Saint Premiere and Panel Discussion

Doors Open at 7:00 pm

Location:

Reiss Science Building Room 112

The Sultan and the Saint (60 minutes)

  • The Sultan and the Saint film tells one of the great, lost stories from history. Set in a past period of East-West conflict, it speaks with urgency to our present. Two men of faith, one a traveling Christian preacher, the other the ruler of a Muslim Empire, bucked a century of war, distrust, and insidious propaganda in a search for mutual respect and common ground. It is the story of Francis of Assisi and the Sultan of Egypt, and their meeting on a bloody battlefield during the period of Christian- Muslim conflict known as the Crusades.

Panel Discussion

  • Laila Alawa, Social Media Entrepreneur and Writer
  • Alex Kronemer, Director of The Sultan and the Saint, Co-Founder of Unity Productions Foundation
  • Marie Denis, Co-President, Pax Chrsti
  • Dr. Ahmed Younis, US Department of State

Moderator:

  • Elizabeth Bruenig, Christian Ethicist and Washington Post Journalist
