A circle is unknowingly formed by six people through friendship, love and casual sex in the Big Apple. One of the six, an actress named Julia, thinks she's gotten her big break when she lands a meaty part in a new crime film. The director, however, has some radical theories about filmmaking. He believes that Julia?instead of relying solely on her lines and the script?must completely become the character of "Anya," the daughter of a Russian arms dealer. In order to do that, she must learn how to negotiate with hit men, handle a gun and enter into the mind of a criminal. But when Julia finds out she is not the only Anya in the mix, this strange circle begins to tighten, twist?and finally break. SUMMERTIME IN NEW YORK screened at the 2011 SXSW Film Festival as a short film entitled "Room 4 Rent."

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.
