    The Sultan and the Saint: A Timeless Story for Today's Peacemakers
    A UNF Distinguished Voices Lecture: Premiere Film Screening & Discussion with Producer
    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.
    Following the Jacksonville premiere of the film, a living room-style conversation will be held with students, community leaders, and Alex Kronemer - the co-founder of Unity Productions Foundation (UPF), its Executive Director, and Executive Producer for all UPF Films such as this one.
    FREE:
    --Students free with UNF ID;
    --Non-students free with ticket (see link below)
