Jacques Cousteau and his underwater Odyssey

We take a dip with that most famous of underwater explorers, Jacques Cousteau. The former French naval commander is the subject of a new biopic "The Odyssey", which recounts the life and work of the filmmaker and environmental activist.

Also, new film "Deepwater Horizon" revisits a real-life environmental disaster in spectacular style. It tells the story of the fatal oil spill that gushed into the Gulf of Mexico in 2010.

And an exhibition here in Paris tackles questions of race, segregation and creation in the US. "The Color Line" celebrates African-American art and culture while bearing witness to its painful history.
