Roger Allers (Director of The Lion King, The Little Match Girl, Open Season) wrote the framing story and directed the overall film, produced by Salma Hayek-Pinault and Clark Peterson.  The original book of poetry, written by the celebrated Lebanese-American author Kahlil Gibran, has sold over 100 million copies in forty languages since its publication in 1923.

 

9 award-winning filmmakers were asked to direct 8 of the poems including:

Michal Socha ON FREEDOM

Nina Paley ON CHILDREN

Joann Sfar ON MARRIAGE

Bill Plympton ON EATING & DRINKING

Joan Gratz ON WORK

Tomm Moore & Ross Stewart ON LOVE

Mohammed Saeed Harib ON GOOD & EVIL

The Brizzi Brothers ON DEATH

 

Tomm Moore & Ross Stewart's ON LOVE, Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet

The soundtrack (now available on iTunes) is by Gabriel Yared featuring YoYo Ma and songs by Damien Rice, Lisa Hannigan and Glen Hansard.

 

We hope that you have a chance over the next few weeks to catch the film as it rolls-out across the country.
