Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This breathtaking animated feature, produced and spearheaded by Salma Hayek, was an official selection at Cannes and made its North American premiere at Toronto International Film Festival. Written and directed by Roger Allers (THE LION KING), the film intersperses Gibran’s elegant poetry within stunning animated sequences by filmmakers Tomm Moore (THE SECRET OF KELLS, SONG OF THE SEA), Nina Paley (SITA SINGS THE BLUES), Bill Plympton (GUIDE DOG), and a host of award-winning animators from around the world. Set in a Mediterranean sea-side village, Kamila (Salma Hayek) cleans house for exiled artist and poet Mustafa (Liam Neeson), but the more difficult job is keeping her free-spirited young daughter, Almitra, (Quvenzhané Wallis) out of trouble. The three embark on a journey meant to end with Mustafa’s return home – but first they must evade the authorities who fear that the truth in his words will incite rebellion. Featuring music from Damien Rice, Glen Hansard and Yo-Yo Ma.
