Young and gorgeous, Jiajia (Wei Tang, Ang Lee's Lust, Caution) travels from Beijing to Seattle to give birth to the son who?s going help her win over her rich, married boyfriend. Armed with his no-limit credit card and the singular goal of returning to China with a tiny U.S. citizen, she thinks she knows how to play this complicated game of modern love. But when she arrives in the city that inspired her all-time favorite movie (Sleepless in Seattle, of course), nothing goes right: she has to share a small house with two other pregnant ladies; she can't reach her boyfriend on the phone; and eventually, even the credit card stops working. To top it off, the only person who will spend time with her is her driver, Frank?who sees through Jiajia's selfish princess act and realizes that deep down, her heart is as big as her Birkin bag. And Frank is the total opposite of everything she wants in a man.... Or could he be exactly the kind of guy she needs? FINDING MR. RIGHT (Beijing yu shang xiyatu, literally "Bejing Meets Seattle") is an utterly charming Chinese comedy that also pays homage to classic Hollywood romance.

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.
