A tale of hope and talent in Dubai’s labour camps
From the award-winning director of 'Grandma, a Thousand Times' comes 'Champ of the Camp' about a massive singing competition taking place each summer in the labour camps of Dubai. Mahmoud Kaabour shows us the other side of the workers' lives. Also on the show Francois Ozon explores teenage sexuality in ‘Young and Beautiful’ and 50 years on we revisit the French town made famous by Catherine Deneuve and Nino Castelnuovo in 'The Umbrellas of Cherbourg.'
