The Little Prince: The Birth of a Star

The Film of the Month for May tells of the unknown circumstances in which pilot and writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry wrote The Little Prince, the most translated book after the Bible.

Considered an unidentified literary object, this book has exerted a mysterious power on its readers that is different for all ages. What is left of this Little Prince today? An ephemeral idea made up of laughter, golden hair, a rose, a ram, stretches of sand, a fox and a melancholy gaze towards the stars.

By exploring the memories of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and those close to him, this film is a faithful testimony to the creation of this philosophical fable that transcends ages, cultures and eras.


The Little Prince: The Birth of a Star is about a period that intertwines amorous, political and artistic intrigues in Saint-Exupéry's life, between June 1940, when he went into exile in New York after the French armistice, and his disappearance in July 1944 in an aeroplane off Marseille,

A landmark film full of emotion, made up of archive footage, personal writings, original drawings, intimate photographs and animations that take us back to this story in an unprecedented way.

Because to remember how this star was born is to remember what unites us.
