"The white sales have started," is the opening line of this engaging documentary, as the camera tracks through an impossibly crammed corridor to reveal the speaker, totally surrounded by her stuff. An estimated two-percent of the population are compulsive hoarders. A researcher in this film suggests that they may be characterized by extreme indecisiveness, procrastination, disorganization, and fears of throwing away something they might need?or indeed of throwing away a part of their self. While it's been widely accepted that hoarding is a disorder on the Obsessive-Compulsive spectrum, this film notes that more recent studies, including brain scans, suggest that it may be a separate, neurologically distinct condition.

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.
