The Sultan And The Saint September 28

A factual tale of a heroic interfaith meeting–for the ages:



In the year 1219, Francis of Assisi risked his life by walking across enemy lines to meet the Sultan of Egypt, the Muslim ruler and scholar Malik al-Kamil. This remarkable encounter between Christian preacher and Muslim ruler effectively smashed the strategy of dehumanizing the enemy in the Crusades and forged new hope for peace.

The Dr. Raana Akbar Memorial Lecture Series, the Catholic Diocese of Saginaw, and Saginaw Valley State University invite you to the Unity Productions Foundation Saginaw premiere of the docudrama The Sultan And The Saint. The film, narrated by Academy Award-winning actor Jeremy Irons and executive produced by Alex Kronemer and Michael Wolfe, is set to air on PBS later this year.


General Admission $4

Proceeds from ticket sales will go to benefit a local charity.
