The Little Prince

Join the Dean as he reads the wonderful allegorical story by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince – a charming children’s tale but with profound adult depths that have never been as important as now in their themes.

The clips also include an interview with Marie Sygne, Lady Northbourne, who was the inspiration for many elements of the story and for whom Saint-Exupéry drew many of the images, photos of which are included in the film by kind generosity of Lady Northbourne.

Finally, in the third video, the Dean reflects on the The Little Prince.

Thanks go to Harper Collins for their generosity in allowing us to use the translation of this most valuable of books free of charge for the benefit of education; to the wonderful young composer, Damien Poupart-Taussat, for his stunning music and for his kindness in allowing us to use his piece, L’inaccessible étoile; to Marie Sygne, Lady Northbourne for her constant encouragement and her wonderful insights and lend of the beautiful original pictures; to Mr Nathan Crouch for all his work behind the scenes; to the late Katharine Woods for her wonderful translation and lastly, but most importantly, to the genius that was Antoine de Saint Exupéry for bringing us the laughter from the stars.
