MAPS presents the Seattle film premiere of Unity of Productions foundation’s new docudrama “The Sultan and the Saint” with opening remarks by the movie producer.
Seattle “Sultan and the Saint” Premiere
A Story of Muslim-Christian Peace
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.

Opening Remarks by: Alex Kronemer
