Come join us for the Pittsburgh premiere of "The Sultan and the Saint," a docudrama film about Muslim-Christian peacemaking narrated by Academy Award Winner, Jeremy Irons.

About the film:

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.
