Reel 2 Real is hosting a FREE outdoor screening of Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet. We invite you join us as we celebrate the art of animation through this captivating film.
Inspired by the Lebanese poet Kahlil Gibran's work, The Prophet is a wondrous and richly-animated adaptation of one of the most recognized and best-selling volumes of poetry of all time. A passion project of producer-actor Salma Hayek, the film's animation team is headed by Roger Allers (The Lion King) and showcases the work of nine internationally acclaimed and independent animators. Set to music by Damien Rice and Yo-Yo Ma, Gibran’s timeless verses have been given enchanting new form in this emotive, painterly, and cinematic adventure about freedom and the power of human expression.
