David Cronenberg: 'I'm still an 'underground' filmmaker'

David Cronenberg has become known as one of the world's greatest directors, for his dark films like "The Fly", "Crash" and "A History Of Violence". Now, his home town of Toronto is honouring him with an unprecedented exhibition showcasing more than four decades of filmmaking. He tells France 24 how Canada held the key to his career, and why he still considers his way of doing things to be underground.

Also on the show: audiences' appetites for "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” are setting the box office alight as it finally reaches France.

Meanwhile, a historic moment for racial equality in France gets a big screen adaptation in “La Marche”.

And meet our pick for best untrained actor of the year: a sweet pet capuchin monkey who has to get back to his Amazon roots when a plane he's being transported in crashes in the rainforest - that's in new release “Amazonia”.
