The Miracle of the Little Prince

Dutch documentarian Marjoleine Boonstra explores language extinction through Antoine Saint-Exupéry's classic novella, The Little Prince.

"In 2019, the UN International Year of Indigenous Languages celebrates the immense value of the world’s indigenous languages, many of which are now rapidly disappearing. This inspiring documentary looks at how four communities use translations of The Little Prince to keep their language and culture alive. From the desert sands of Morocco and the Berber language of Tamazight, to the Sami people on the border of Norway and Finland, exiled Tibetan translators, and the ancient Aztec language of the Pipil people of El Salvador, The Miracle of the Little Prince explores the nature of language and the significance of Saint-Exupéry’s words in the today’s world."
