Kahlil Gibran's "The Prophet" at the Detroit Institute of Arts


If you're in the Detroit area this Friday, June 5th, the Detroit Institute of Arts will be showing the animated feature film "The Prophet" based on the poetry of Lebanese author Kahlil Gibran.

The Prophet was produced by Salma Hayek and animated by Tomm Moore (The Secret of Kells), Bill Plympton (Idiots and Angels), Nina Paley (Sita Sings the Blues) and Academy Award Winner Joan C. Gratz (Mona Lisa Descending a Staircase), among others.


This will be an outdoor screening, so bring a lawn chair or a blanket. Additionally, this is a free event! So there will be no charge to see the film.

Details on the screening can be seen on the DIA website. There is a Jazz performance at 7 p.m. followed by the screening at sundown--which they have listed at 9:30 p.m.




Hope to see some of you there. :)
