I have been a Kahlil Gibran researcher for the better part of 17 years. Several years ago I set out to make a film that would capture Gibran’s life story, but as time went by I discovered that a different, more amazing film was unfolding; the story of his poetic legacy.
Using this narrative are aim is to create a documentary film that captures Gibran’s most rewarding achievement, the inspiration of his most influential work, The Prophet, in the lives of his continually growing readership. Our search for the spirit of Gibran will take us places unimagined, across decades, across borders, and into many lives.
However, making a documentary film about the tremendous influence of a larger-than-life-figure such as Gibran is a monumental challenge. It requires a whole host of amazingly talented individuals, loads of passionate admirers, and help with funding from some very generous souls. My hope is that you will fall into one of these categories.
Here are a few ways you can contribute to this effort:
Who is Kahlil Gibran to you and why should we know?
How has Gibran or The Prophet influenced your life or the life of a friend or relative?
Our aim is to collect stories from all across the globe. These tales will make up a vast collection I hope to use them in our film and upcoming multimedia projects.
