Docudrama to Be Screened at Orlando Museum of Art

The Altantic Institute and the American Muslim Community Center in Longwood are partnering to bring to Orlando the docudrama The Sultan and the Saint: A Timeless Story for Today’s PeacemakersThe 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.” A single free screening of the film will be held at the Orlando Museum of Art (2416 North Mills Avenue, Orlando, FL 32803) on Sunday, April 23, at 3:00 pm.
