Bringing a biblical tale to the big screen

It’s a tale almost as old as time and its modern film recreation has sparked controversy. Darren Aronofsky’s movie "Noah" has been banned in several countries for its depiction of a prophet while some religious groups have called it inaccurate. We speak to the film director about why he chose to bring the biblical tale to the big screen, his decision to cast Russell Crowe as the lead and his inclination to make films about obsessive characters.

Also on the show: it may be a picture book but the harrowing tale it tells is very much real. We meet the former French journalist who depicted the horrors of the Rwandan genocide in a graphic novel.

And breaking down barriers one dance step at a time. International ballroom champion Pierre Dulaine brings Palestinian and Jewish children together, the best way he knows how.
