The Miracle of the Little Prince

Het Wonder van Le Petit Prince

This fascinating documentary visits the people who translated the celebrated children’s book The Little Prince in some of the world’s rarest languages, still spoken today but in danger of extinction. Passionately enthusiastic language researchers, teachers, and translators recall the first time they read the iconic little masterpiece and discuss the linguistic challenges they faced. Little by little, their personal stories bring to light experiences as bizarre, painful and moving as those of the famous and inspiring wonder literary character.
