It’s the second most-translated book after the Bible: Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. This philosophical masterpiece dating from 1943 has not only provided comfort to millions of people, but has also saved many languages from falling into disuse. This is the gist of the documentary made by Marjoleine Boonstra, in which she portrays four translators from very different corners of the earth – from the Moroccan desert to the snowy planes of Finland. “Visually stunning”, is the way Het Parool described this film, which is also a portrait of the earth on which the Little Prince once landed. “These passionate translators are rather like concerned biologists speaking out against the demise of diversity in flora and fauna: the more languages we have, the richer our global culture. And that’s the way it should stay.” (De Filmkrant).

About the Nutshuis Open Air Film Festival
Sultry temperatures, fresh, exciting meals created by Juni Café, beanbags to sit on while your food goes down and a film projected onto a huge outdoor screen. What better way to spend a warm summer evening? On the last Saturday in July and all five Saturdays in August, the Nutshuis garden will be transformed into a cosy open air cinema to host the popular annual Nutshuis Open Air Film Festival.

Our summer exhibition Urban bugs, which shines the spotlight on the insects that are essential to healthy urban life, was an important source of inspiration for the films we selected this year. But it is not only our bee and butterfly populations that are under threat; so much more is in danger of disappearing in today’s world. For example: being a shepherd, the rich variety of seeds, minority languages from all around the world. These films are the result of passionate people enthusiastically trying to turn the tide – sometimes meeting with success, sometimes with failure.

Approaching the theme from a culinary angle, Juni Café will treat its guests to a weekly variation of a dish that used to be a monotonous feature of any party or event: jazzed-up potato salad. The generous buffet dinners in the garden are a tried, tested and far-from-boring formula. Before the Open Air screenings, guests can come and enjoy hot and cold dishes and a richly filled salad bar.

Nutshuis Open Air Film Festival is a collaboration between Het Nutshuis, Juni Café, Movies that Matter and Cinemien.
