Movies on the Block: The Prophet

Join Southeast by Southeast and the Philadelphia Film Society for a movie screening at Mifflin Square Park! In the film The Prophet, exiled artist and poet Mustafa embarks on a journey home with his housekeeper and her daughter. Together, the trio must evade the authorities who fear that the truth in Mustafa’s words will start a rebellion.

The Prophet / 2014 / 84 min / Directed by Roger Allers. Before the film screening, enjoy screen printing and a photo booth, a farmer’s market and food truck provided by SEAMAAC, and film-related activities from the Philadelphia Film Society. Plus: snacks, giveaways, and more!

Activities begin at 6:30 p.m., and the film will begin at sundown.

Presented by the Philadelphia Film Society, Movies on the Block is a free, seasonal screening program designed to support Philadelphia neighborhoods with little access to film by invigorating established community gathering spaces and facilitating engagement with meaningful film programming and activities.
