Short and sweet: Clermont-Ferrand's film festival draws an international crowd

We head to the centre of France for an eclectic selection of pocket-sized films as Clermont-Ferrand screens the best in shorts from around the world. FRANCE 24's reporters check out the highlights and take a look back at the festival's history. Also, a painting known as the "African Mona Lisa" has been found in a flat in London. Ben Enwonwu's 1974 portrait of a Yoruba princess had been missing for more than four decades; we hear from the auction house putting the legendary canvas up for sale.

And we check in with an up-and-coming French band that are so precocious they've been called "baby punks". Therapie Taxi are eyeing the charts with their debut album "Hit Sale".
