DON’T SEE YOUR CITY?
 
Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet is a true independent release, and relies on fans like you to reach an audience. We work tirelessly each day with theaters, to try to bring the film out as wide as possible, and announce new theaters with an updated Theater List each Tuesday during the release. If you don’t see your city now, please let us know in the comments, and check back to see if and when we can make it happen! We also encourage asking the manager at your local cinema if they will consider playing the film. 
 
And if the film is playing in your city, encourage your friends and family to see it early in the release! Bigger box office early in the release means that the film stays in theaters longer, and can come to more cities. We know you’ll leave the theater feeling uplifted and inspired by Gibran’s timeless words, and the beautiful animated segments bringing it to life. Please consider sharing this feeling with others!

aboutthefilm

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, produced and spearheaded by Salma Hayek, was an official selection at Cannes and made its North American premiere at the 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), Bill Plympton (Guide Dog), Joan Gratz (Mona Lisa Descending a Staircase), Nina Paley (Sita Sings the Blues), and a host of award-winning animators from around the world. Set in a Mediterranean seaside 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, Gabriel Yared, and Yo-Yo Ma.
