Gkids, a distributor of award-winning animation for both adult and family audiences, has acquired the North American rights to "Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet," a film inspired by the beloved classic book by Kahlil Gibran.  The gorgeously-animated story was crafted in a collaboration with artists, animators and musicians. The film was written and directed by Roger Allers ("The Lion King"), and individual "chapters" based on Gibran's poems have been designed and directed by various acclaimed animators from around the world, including Tomm Moore (Oscar nominee for "The Secret of Kells" and "Song of the Sea"), Joan Gratz (Oscar winner for "Mona Lisa Descending a Staircase"),  Bill Plympton (Oscar nominee for "Guard Dog" and "Your Face"), Nina Paley (Annecy winner for "Sita Sings the Blues"), Joann Sfar (Cesar winner for "The Rabbi's Cat"), Paul and Gaetan Brizzi »
