Consuelo and Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
"When Love Endures"

Documentary I In Production I 52' I 2024

Everything sets apart the Salvadoran artist Consuelo Suncin Sandoval and the aviator-writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Nevertheless, from the moment they met in September 1930 in Buenos Aires, it was evident. A marriage soon seals their union, and Antoine embarks on the most uncertain flight of his life: to love Consuelo and to be loved by Consuelo. For this free-spirited woman with a volcanic temperament, a long path of trials begins: to exist for him as much as for herself... Between 1931 and 1944, separated by continents, history, and challenges, Antoine and Consuelo have never truly parted. Through their words and their works, the film seeks to understand what binds this couple, as fascinating as it is mysterious.
