This year, "Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet", an animation collaboration, will be screened at the Annecy Festival.

Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet will premiere in France at the Festival's opening ceremony on Monday 15th June.

Salma Hayek called on 9 of the biggest names in animation for this film, written and directed by Roger Allers (director of The Lion King) and inspired by Kahlil Gibran's masterpiece. Each was given the mission of directing a sequence, depending on their artistic preferences, to complete a collective film, a sort of mosaic orchestrated by Roger Allers.

Synopsis
On the imaginary island of Orphalese, a mischievous and mute 8-year-old girl named Almitra fortuitously meets Mustafa, a political prisoner under house arrest and they form an unlikely friendship. But on the day that they meet, the government tells Mustafa that he is finally free and soldiers quickly escort him to a boat that will take him back home.

On the way, Mustafa shares his poems and views on existence with the people of Orphalese while Almitra secretly follows him. At each step along the way, she dreams up sumptuous landscapes that illustrate his words. When the little girl learns that the government has plans to kill Mustafa, she decides to try anything to help him.
