Okay, so we really carefully select all of the films for this film series as we want to bring our community a diversity of inspirational, thought-provoking films that speak to the soul/spirit. THIS FILM IS NOT TO BE MISSED. Seriously. Just come. It's suitable for children but it is not only for children—especially if you have known and loved Kahil Gibran's, The Prophet, and even more perhaps if you don't know it or have had it just sitting on your shelf all these years. This film is stunningly beautiful, evocative and speaks deeply to the soul. 

Think of “Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet” as a gift: a work of essential spiritual enlightenment, elegantly interpreted by nine of the world’s leading independent animators, all tied up and wrapped in a family-friendly bow by “The Lion King” director Roger Allers. The film beautifully captures Lebanese philosopher-poet Kahil Gibran’s cherished guide to life, death, love, and art with stunning animation and music. As if it weren’t special enough to hear Neeson recite Gibran’s sentiments amidst such striking visuals, the addition of music further elevates verses that so many have already committed to memory and which a whole new audience can now discover for the first time. 

(Bring the kids to this one!)
