Narrated by Peter Gallagher, this documentary brings the history of oil prices and future of alternative fuels into focus in this documentary. Concerned with American dependence on foreign oil and curious as to how America could go from the largest exporter of oil to the largest importer, filmmakers Jeremy Wagener and Scott Roberts seek out the opinions of such experts as U.S. Department of Energy officials, alternative fuel producers, alternative fuel consumers, economic professors, and congressional leaders from both the Democratic and Republican parties. In addition to asking some truly challenging questions, GASHOLE also examines a variety of potential solutions to America's oil dependence. Could it be that greedy oil companies have buried existing technology designed to dramatically improve gas mileage, and why is the typical American consumer so reluctant to embrace alternative energy forms? For anyone who fills up their tank and scoffs at the rolling numbers on the gas pump display, this film may just have the answers to your most pressing questions.

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.
