Considered shocking upon its initial 1920s release, NOSFERATU is widely recognized today as a must-see horror classic. It is a German expressionist film. Essentially an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula, this landmark of German expressionism was directed by by F.W. Murnau and stars Max Schreck as the vampire Count Orlok. Recounted from the diary of Bremen historian Johann Cavallius, he speculates about whether Nosferatu brought the plague to the city in 1838. The disease's arrival coincides with Count Orlok's move to Wisburg, his dealings with the realtor Thomas Hutter and the Count's obsession with Hutter's wife Ellen?who is the only one with the power to end the evil with the "Book of the Vampires."

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.
