Salma Hayek on Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet
Paul MacInnes talks to the actor about her animated version of Kahlil Gibran’s bestseller The Prophet
Your animated adaptation of Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet is about a deported poet delivering sermons. It’s not your average children’s movie.
What’s great about the story is that it’s very simplistic. It’s not complicated philosophy or even that sophisticated writing. However, it’s managed to touch so many people because there’s a lot of truth in what he says. His story doesn’t teach so much as remind you of things that you know deep down.
