The Digital Bomb

85mins2010DocumentaryTVPG
THE DIGITAL BOMB is a rollercoaster ride through the land of digital creativity. Internet "celebrity" Tron Guy presents the past, present and future of the digital galaxies of the Web. In the social galaxy, Bernard Stiegler of the Centre Pompidou introduces us to the age of the amateur. We discover webstars like technical evangelist Justine Ezarik and Leslie Hall, the "diva-deal" on the Internet. In the commercial galaxy we experience why digital creativity holds the key to future of creativity. We meet the digital creatives that are actually taking advantage of the new medium that is open and free and full of discourse. The media galaxy is about the death of traditional media. The cartel of the major networks and big content owners have made things more expensive than they need to be. And the Internet is all about free distribution and egalitarian information sharing. In the modern web there is no distinction between our online life and our offline life. We experience the discrepancy of the Net being a great platform where everybody can be creative and its threat to privacy. Where is it all going to? We cannot rip the wires out of the ground.

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.
