Invisible Essence: The Little Prince

HOW ONE LITTLE TALE BECAME THE BIGGEST LITERARY PHENOMENON OF ALL TIME

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s transcendent story suggests an ethical philosophy about life and a universal code of respect for humanity. With every new generation that discovers the fable, The Little Prince’s inspiring legacy is cemented.

"An unexpected work from the director of Unarmed Verses and The Skin We’re In, Charles Officer’s Invisible Essence: The Little Prince is a gentle, loving consideration of the legacy of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s beloved book.

Using excerpts from the various adaptations of Saint-Exupéry’s tale over the decades, along with contemporary interviews with artists, academics and surviving members of the author’s family, Officer constructs a sort of an annotated reading of the text, taking us through the story of the stranded aviator and the curious alien child he befriends in the desert from its gentle beginning to its bittersweet conclusion.

And stitched through it all is a history of Saint-Exupéry himself, investigating the tragedies of his early life, his complicated romantic relationship with his wife, Consuelo Suncín, and his lifelong fascination with aviation – all of which informed and influenced The Little Prince in one way or another."
