This is the epic story of how 170 million album sales and more Grammys than any other group in history has made U2 Ireland?s most famous export?as well as one of the biggest bands in the world. Having kept the same lineup from when they first formed in 1976, the four band members?Paul Hewson (Bono), Larry Mullins Jr, Dave Evans (The Edge) and Adam Clayton?are as close to one another as family. But part of what makes U2 so special is that the band is almost as well known for their philanthropy and charity work as they are for their music. Lead singer Bono has made a name for himself as a tireless worker for social and economic change in Third World Countries, and U2: A ROCK CRUSADE is the story of the band?s never-ending energy, drive and commitment to social causes. It?s the story of a charismatic showman?s efforts to extend his influence into politics, in order to affect change for the people who need it most?the poor and disadvantaged.

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.
