Broadway with a twist in Paris

Singin' in the Rain, The Band Wagon and almost 200 years of American musical theatre tradition have inspired our studio guest, Mark Tompkins. The American dancer, choreographer, and teacher tells Catherine Nicholson how forty years of living in France have added a European twist to the shows performed by his company, I.D.A Mark Tompkins.

After the Oscar nominations, we’re introducing you to one film that has got six nominations but is less well-known than other frontrunners: "Dallas Buyers’ Club", starring Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner and Jared Leto.

Also on the show, we meet the young Congolese actress Rachel Mwanza. Only a couple of years ago, she was abandoned and homeless on the streets of Kinshasa, accused of being a witch and facing brutal violence. We tell you how a chance meeting with a Canadian filmmaker propelled her into a film career, and acclaim at the Berlin and Tribeca film festivals.
