HEAVY METAL PARKING LOT is considered one of the greatest rock movies of all time?a hilarious documentary tribute to greatest rock fans ever. Filmed in 1986 at a Maryland concert arena parking lot before a Judas Priest show, it's an unvarnished anthropological study of American metalheads at the height of their spandexed glory. It is a quintessential 1980s magnum opus?made complete with a vast display of bleach-blonde frizzy perms, bare-chested dudes, Mullets From Hell, faded denim rocker chicks and the largest collection of late '70s Camaros ever seen in one location. Virtually unknown to mainstream audiences for two decades, HEAVY METAL PARKING LOT was a VHS bootleg favorite among musicians, movie stars and cult-video fanatics worldwide.

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.
