Yes, it’s likely to be raining in the greater Portland, Oregon, area tomorrow (but chances are if you live here, you’re tough enough to cope and unlikely to dissolve if you get wet).
And, yeah, depending on where you start from, Tigard can be a long drive (but maybe you go to Washington Square on a shopping trip now and then).
Agreed, Nov. 16 is a school night (but I’m told by that Thursday is the new Friday when it comes seeking entertainment).
You do have a point that seeing a docudrama that hasn’t been widely released in mega theater chains can be chancy (but we Portland types love independent movies, right? Especially if it’s won lots of awards, and a producer will be on hand to talk about the project.).
Acknowledging that, with a title like The Sultan and the Saint, this film could be about a Saudi prince playing football in New Orleans (we are smarter than that, right?).
Given all that, please consider braving the weather, the drive, the night, the genre, the title (which I kind of like) and come to the Portland-area screening of a new movie made by a Muslim film company with the help of a Catholic spiritual organization that tells the true story of a fifth-century meeting between Saint Francis of Assisi and the Muslim ruler of Egypt.
Yes, it will probably be raining here tomorrow, but if you make the effort and see this movie, you might be inspired to risk something and reach out to a stranger. For more about the movie, click here. To buy tickets online, click here, or pay at the door. Thank you for thinking about it!
