Film: The Sultan and the Saint Nov 16 / 7 PM
There was a time when two men, a Muslim and a Christian, who might have been enemies, opened their hearts to each other in pursuit of peace. A new film tells the true story of Saint Francis of
Assisi and the Sultan of Egypt, Muhammad al-Kamil, who defied their cultures and met in 1219, during the height of the Crusades. The Portland premiere of this award-winning docudrama will take place on Thursday, Nov. 16, at the Muslim Educational Trust center (10330 S.W. Scholls Ferry Road, in Tigard). The doors will open at 6:30 pm, the film will begin at 7:00 pm. Tickets, $10 for adults and $5 for students, are available online at www.metpdx.org and at the door. Any questions, contact Rod Stafford in the PMC office.
