The Prophet

"I am a prisoner. My crime? Poetry." After debuting at the Cannes Film Festival last year, the animated drama The Prophet is finally coming to the United States this year. Based on the book of prose and poems of the same name, the film features the voices of Liam Neeson, Salma Hayek, Quvenzhané Wallis, John Krasinski, Frank Langella, Alfred Molina and more, along with a myriad of animation styles to bring the friendship between a little girl and an imprisoned poet to life. Bill Plympton, Joann Sfar and more lend their animation expertise to the film that looks absolutely beautiful and breathtaking. Watch!

Here's the teaser trailer for Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet from Gulf Film (via The Playlist):

The Prophet is directed by Roger Allers, Paul and Gaëtan Brizzi, Joan C. Gratz, Mohammed Saeed Harib, Tomm Moore, Nina Paley, Bill Plympton, Joann Sfar, and Michal Socha. Inspired by the collection of prose and poems of the same name, the film tells the story of an unlikely friendship between a young, mischievous girl and an imprisoned poet. Interwoven with Gibran’s lyrical and inspiring words on the true nature as love, work, children, and freedom, is a variety of animation and music. The film premiered at Cannes Film Festival in 2014, also played TIFF, and GKIDS releases it in the United States on August 7th.

I have the book somewhere, but I don't know where, for a long time. Unfortunately, I never read it. However, the trailer looks nice ... Maybe, I might at least watch the movie ...
