Starring Jaycee Chan (son of legendary martial arts superstar Jackie Chan), DOUBLE TROUBLE (Bao dao shuang xiong) is a kick-ass action comedy bursting with jaw-dropping fight sequences, sexy art thieves and hilarious hijinks. Tied together face-to-face in a chair, two men struggle against the ropes that hold them captive. Flashback two days previously.... A 400-year old Chinese painting is about to go on view to the public in a Taipei museum, and security guard Jay (Chan) is ready to protect this Taiwanese national treasure at all costs. When a pair of stiletto-heeled beauties (Jessica C. and Shoko) infiltrate the building in an attempt to steal the piece, he snaps into action?only to be stopped by Ocean (Xia Yu), a very confused Beijing security guard on vacation. Jay hops in his jeep with Ocean in tow, and puts the peddle to the metal in hot pursuit. But what they don't realize is that this priceless painting was accidentally swapped out during the melee?and brought on to Ocean?s tour bus by a fellow traveller. Meanwhile, Crime Boss Z (Vivian Dawson) is none too pleased when he realizes his minions' error, and demands they go back out to finish the job.

War
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.
