DIVERGENCE is a critically acclaimed official entry in over 12 international film festivals; critics have described it as the best narrative feature that describes how America has struggled with 9/11.

DIVERGENCE tells the tale of two wounded people coming together and grappling with the ramifications of war and loss. Set in a picturesque seaside town on the Jersey shores in the midst of a cold and bitter winter, we are introduced to Tim Lawson. Tim is a wounded, disillusioned veteran of the Iraq war who returns to his hometown, in an attempt to reclaim a simpler time in his life after experiencing the horrors of war. By chance he meets Clare O'Neil, a model-beautiful woman whose life has been turned upside down by a fatal accident, forever bonding her personal loss to a nation's sorrow. She now hides away in a secluded beach house having all but given up on the world. When a fateful event brings the two of them together, they are drawn to each other in a common bond by their experiences. As their relationship becomes increasingly more passionate, they must make decisions that will have profound effect on the rest of their lives.

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.
