Brimming with the sleazy glamour of 1970s New York and wildly dark humor, ANDY WARHOL'S BAD is the story of Hazel Aiken (Oscar-nominated actress Carroll Baker), a housewife who runs a beauty salon and electrolysis clinic out of her house. She also runs another little business on the side?hiring out a cadre of badass gals to perform various freelance assassin gigs. A very corrupt Detective Hughes (Charles McGregor, Blazing Saddles) is itching for Hazel to sacrifice one of her "employees" to arrest, which she refuses to do. But when her no-good nephew J.T. (Perry King, The Class of 1984) comes looking for work, she reluctantly decides to give him a trial run. The final film project produced under the pop art icon's imprimatur before his 1987 death, ANDY WARHOL'S BAD also features a fantastic supporting roster of cult stars including Oscar-nominee Susan Tyrrell (Fat City), Factory regular Brigid Polk (Ciao Manhattan!) and Stefania Casini (Suspiria).

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.
