Our guest is Tunisian filmmaker Kaouther Ben Hania, whose latest movie has been nominated for best international feature at the Oscars at the end of the month. The powerful film is a very different take on the plight of refugees and immigration. Starring Monica Bellucci and Yahya Mahayn, "The Man Who Sold His Skin" tells the story of a Syrian refugee who agrees to become a living piece of art so he can travel to Europe. The director tells us more about what inspired her to make the film.
