Narrated by award-winning actor Peter Coyote, I AM FISHEAD is a film which asks the question: "What is wrong with the world we live in?" It is generally acknowledged that society is shaped like a pyramid?and a few individuals at the top create the environment for the rest at the bottom. In the wake of such catastrophes as the 2008 financial meltdown, it appears as if the world?s elites?politicians and bankers?have failed in their given roles. Guided by the expression "A fish rots from the head," filmmakers Misha Votruba and Vaclav Dejcmar set out to investigate that rotten odor. What they discovered is that people at the top are more likely to be psychopaths than the rest of us. Could their presence in positions of power be the primary threat to global stability?

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.
