Find out what side of the force you're on at the 'Star Wars Identities' exhibition

In today's show we take you on an identity quest! Who would you be if you were a character from Star Wars? A Jedi Knight? Or maybe an Ewok? Now you have the chance to find out. An exhibition at the Cité du Cinema on the outskirts of Paris takes you on an interactive journey into the world of George Lucas and his famous movie saga, allowing you to build your own Star Wars hero. We sent Clovis Casali along to find out which side of the force he's on.

Also on the show: he went from being just another pawn in the game of emigration and asylum seeking to check-mating the system. We take a look at the incredible story of the chess-playing prodigy Fahim Alam, as a book about his life is released.

Finally, we find out how a graphic novel depicting the vetoed resolutions, verbal ping-pong matches and diplomatic deadlock over the Syrian conflict is being received at the United Nations.
