Who do we really belong with? Wendell is a neurotic twenty something with no future. Vicky is a dirty, mean bartender who's dating Wendell. Their relationship is based on a mutual lack of ambition and cleanliness, and the most refined thing they do together is go to art galleries for the free food. When Joanna, a nice, stable social worker, invites Wendell to a meeting with one of her many activist groups, he suddenly feels like he might be capable of doing something worthwhile after all. He starts to date Joanna, who brings him into her alien world where people actually care about things. But is this newfound selflessness who he really is? A classic love triangle becomes much more, and Wendell has to decide not only who he belongs with, but what kind of person he is underneath all that neuroses. Written and directed by Adam Bowers, NEW LOW is a fresh, laugh-out-loud comedy with a punk aesthetic and razor sharp dialogue.

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.
