Based on the book “The Saint and the Sultan” by Paul Moses, this film will intrigue and inspire everyone from history buff to peace activist. Those who remain after the movie will be able to hear directly from the book’s author.
“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.” —Alexander Kronemer, director
