The Miracle of the Little PrinceDocumentaries
The Miracle of the Little Prince is a poetic exploration of how four communities draw on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s beloved novella to preserve their native languages.
This timely documentary, screening in the United Nations Year of Indigenous Languages, explores how The Little Prince (1943) — the world’s second most translated book, next to the Bible — has been central to the survival
of four languages: the Tamazight language of the Berber people in North Africa, the Sámi languages of Northern Europe, the Nawat language of Central America and Tibetan. The beautiful, lingering cinematography brings these cultures to life as the film reveals how central language is, to understanding not only culture but also to understanding our own identities, histories and traditions.
