By chance, Almitra, a mischievous and mute 8-year-old, meets Mustafa, an exiled artist and poet, and the two form an unlikely friendship. When Almitra learns Mustafa is in danger because of his poems and his views on life, she will do anything to help him.
Based on Gibran’s timeless poetry, Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet is a boldly designed cinematic adventure about freedom and the power of human expression. This long-awaited feature is directed by Roger Allers (director of The Lion King) and produced by Salma Hayek, each verse animated by a different filmmaker, including 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 other award-winning animators from around the globe.

P.S. In our The Art of Tomm Moore program, Moore will also give an in-depth presentation on the 'On Love' chapter he directed for the film.
