One of the most atmospherically eerie works of American horror cinema, CARNIVAL OF SOULS is a B-movie cult classic that continues to inspire directors today. Herk Harvey's macabre masterpiece is the story of a young woman who goes along for the ride when some small-town Kansas hot-rodders hold a drag race and are forced off a bridge, plunging into the flooded river below. The sole survivor of the accident, Mary Henry (Candace Hilligoss) relocates to Salt Lake City - where she is repeatedly troubled by a bizarre apparition that beckons her to an abandoned lakeside pavilion. Made by industrial filmmakers on a modest budget, the film was intended to have the "look of a Bergman" and "feel of a Cocteau" and succeeds with its strikingly used locations and spooky organ score.

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.
