Description

Khalil Gibran’s The Prophet – Animated Film. Featuring the voices of Salma Hayek and Liam Neeson.

This delightful animated film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and has received critical acclaim at various festivals around the world including Cannes, New York, Annecy, Doha and the Arab Film Festival (San Francisco, Los Angeles &San Diego). It is based on the book of the same name by Lebanese philosopher Khalil Gibran.

After 12 years of exile, Almustafa (the prophet) is about to return home with his housekeeper and her daughter. Along the way the trio evade authorities who fear Mustafa’s words will incite rebellion. On the journey, he is stopped by a group of people with whom he discusses various philosophical topics through poetry including love, work, freedom, marriage and good and evil.

Initially published in the 1923, The Prophet has been a steady bestseller and is one of the best known books ever published in the world.  Salma Hayek, a great fan of the book, has spent over 10 years producing this film.
