Synopsis (Courtesy of gibransprophetmovie.com)

The Prophet, by celebrated Lebanese-American author Kahlil Gibran, is among the most popular volumes of poetry ever written, selling over 100 million copies in forty languages since its publication in 1923.  Gibran’s timeless verses have been given enchanting new form in this painterly cinematic adventure about freedom and the power of human expression.

This breathtaking animated feature was an official selection at Cannes and the Toronto International Film Festival.  Directed by Roger Allers (The Lion King), the film intersperses Gibran’s elegant poetry within stunning animated sequences

Set in a Mediterranean seaside and exiled artist and poet, Mustafa, develops a relationship with Kamila and her young daughter, Almitra while authorities fear that his works will incite rebellion.
