The Sultan and the Saint brings viewers into an encounter with wisdom and courage, in a day and age when we need both.

The life of St. Francis has been one of the most important and inspiring examples for my own life. And the story of his engagement with the Sultan, I believe, is one of the most important stories for our time. If enough of us learn this story and enter into its drama, it could change the world!

I do believe that Muslims, Christians, & Jews have no option but to talk to one another. I really like what UPF is doing in creating movies, films that spark this dialogue. Please join UPF’s wonderful effort.

We Clinton Franciscans see this film project as an opportunity to teach the truths of peace and charity and understanding … all of these qualities are respected in both Christianity and in Islam.
