'The Florida Project': Slumming it in the Sunshine State

Director Sean Baker’s latest film is set in what's often sold as "The Happiest Place in the World". The city of Orlando might be home to Disneyland, but "The Florida Project" is a very different take on motel life in America’s backwaters. Baker tells us about tracking down his leading lady Bria Viante on Instagram and how he managed to observe a social reality far from his own.

Also, Paris’s Pompidou Centre gives late sculptor César Baldaccini the thumbs-up with a new retrospective and we check out a South African film that’s sparked outcry in the Xhosa community.
