Rest Upon The Wind by Nadim Sawalha The story of an Arab in America.
Rest Upon The Wind: The Life and Times of Khalil Gibran.
Inspired by Khalil Gibran’s book, The Prophet, published in 1923 and selling over a hundred million copies, it’s the story of Middle Eastern immigrants forced through Ottoman oppression and wars seeking refuge in America.
‘The Prophet’, is still being read and quoted by millions of people across the world, and its author Kalil Gibran, from Ottoman Empire freedom fighter to Arab in exile in the West.
Scintillating, electric, with live music and stunning visual imagery it’s unmissable!
"A little while, a moment of rest upon the wind, and another woman shall bear me."
