203 DAYS is a documentary about one family facing the death of the matriarch. It depicts the family dynamics at work when Sarah (age 89), the terminally ill mother comes to live with Kaye, her daughter. Even with the help of hospice, both Sarah and Kaye are faced with the stress of family conflicts and daily decisions about pain management, mobility, outside assistance, and medical crises. The viewer sees how Kaye copes with each step of Sarah's decline and how both Kaye and Sarah choose to acknowledge impending death in an age where so much effort is made to distance ourselves from it. 203 DAYS reveals how critical, life-changing incidents trigger major decisions about end-of-life care for the patient and caregiver.

A powerful, emotional and relevant reminder of the heartbreaking toll war takes on the innocent, this award-winning documentary tells the story of the Japanese invasion of Nanking, China, in the early days of World War II. As part of a campaign to conquer all of China, the Japanese subjected Nanking?which was then China's capital?to months of aerial bombardment, and when the city fell, the Japanese army unleashed murder and rape on a horrifying scale. In the midst of the rampage, a small group of Westerners banded together to establish a Safety Zone where over 200,000 Chinese found refuge. Unarmed, these missionaries, university professors, doctors and businessmen?including a Nazi named John Rabe?bore witness to the events, while risking their own lives to protect civilians from slaughter. The story is told through deeply moving interviews with Chinese survivors, chilling archival footage and photos, testimonies of former Japanese soldiers?and a staged reading of the Westerners' letters and diaries by Woody Harrelson, Mariel Hemingway, Jurgen Prochnow and others. NANKING is a testament to the courage and conviction of individuals who were determined to act in the face of evil and a powerful tribute to the resilience of the Chinese people?a gripping account of light in the darkest of times. This version of the film features descriptive narration for the blind and visually impaired, created by the Narrative Television Network.
