Invisible Essence: The Little Prince

“An unexpected work from the director of Unarmed Verses and The Skin We’re In, Charles Officer’s Invisible Essence: The Little Prince is a gentle, loving consideration of the legacy of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s beloved book.

“Using excerpts from the various adaptations of Saint-Exupéry’s tale over the decades, along with contemporary interviews with artists, academics and surviving members of the author’s family, Officer constructs a sort of an annotated reading of the text, taking us through the story of the stranded aviator and the curious alien child he befriends in the desert from its gentle beginning to its bittersweet conclusion.

“Officer uses the interpretations as sources to illustrate the analysis and background provided by a host of experts. Osborne and Côté are on hand to discuss what inspirations they drew from the book, the poet and illustrator Rupi Kaur offers some sharp insights into the secondary characters of the Rose and the Lamplighter, and New Yorker columnist Adam Gopnik unexpectedly provides a very lively reading.” - NOW Toronto
