The Little Prince: A Filmmaker’s Story

A Conversation with Mark Osborne and Christine Nelson

Inspired in part by a special gift of a copy of The Little Prince, Mark Osborne—director of Kung Fu Panda and the forthcoming film Bone—made the audacious decision to adapt one of the world’s best-loved stories into a full-length animated feature film. Join him as he talks with Christine Nelson, Drue Heinz Curator of the Morgan’s 2014 exhibition The Little Prince: A New York Story, about the personal and creative journey that resulted in his award-winning 2015 animated film The Little Prince. A special screening of the film (at 2:30 pm) follows the talk.

The exhibition Joseph Cornell: The Saint-Exupéry Dossier will open for program attendees.
