“One sees clearly only with the heart. The essential is invisible to the eye.” – The Little Prince
It’s been 75 years since the timeless novella The Little Prince was published. In that time, it has been read by countless children and parents and translated into 300 languages. The ideology of the seminal work by French author and aristocrat Antoine de Saint-Exupéry is perfectly captured in the above quote which is now dissected and appreciated in the new feature-length documentary Invisible Essence: The Little Prince, arriving on Digital and VOD October 16, 2018.
In addition to the history and legacy of The Little Prince, the new documentary looks closely at many elements within the story and their deeper meaning.

Synopsis of Invisible Essence: The Little Prince:
Invisible Essence explores the global legacy of The Little Prince 75 years after its publication. The film introduces a modern day little prince—a seven-year-old blind Pakistani-Canadian boy who absorbs The Little Prince for the first time—and captures engaging conversations with an incredible range of individuals such as Mark Osborne (Director of the animated film The Little Prince), Rupi Kaur (Poet, New York Times Bestselling Author), and Olivier and Francois D’Agay, the great nephew and nephew of Antoine de Saint-Exupery. Although a fable, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s transcendent story suggests an ethical philosophy about life in its own way, a code of respect for humanity.
