In the United States, AIDS has been forgotten, but it is far from gone, especially for African Americans. Between 1985 and 1995, in the midst of the HIV/AIDS holocaust, it was becoming clear that African Americans were rapidly overtaking whites as the fastest growing population to be infected. Even after the year 2000, when AIDS was no longer hitting the headlines and many people believed drugs could keep it under control, AIDS continues to be one of the leading killers of African Americans.

THE AIDS CHRONICLES: HERE TO REPRESENT is a focused look at the social and cultural impact of AIDS on the large African American community of the city of Atlanta. People of every educational and economic level, gender identity, age, and religion are infected or affected by AIDS. Those featured want their stories to be told;  and open their lives to the camera, holding little back. Through their actions, decisions and behaviors we learn why AIDS still rages as an epidemic for African Americans.

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.
