Inspired by the miracles that began at the Church of Zeitoun in Egypt in the 1960's, where a visage of Mary holding baby Jesus persisted on a ceiling despite cleaning, painting and construction, as well as other persistent events of visions, including church rooftop illumination outlining the mother Mary; a statue of Mary crying an oily substance that seems to have healing powers...Visions of Miracles examines how unexplained events in the most unlikely places prompt revitalization of faith, for the faithful and skeptics alike, demonstrating the presence of unexplained mysteries we call miracles in ways that defy both reason and explanation. Bestselling author and filmmaker Paul Perry takes us on a journey of discovery deep inside the mystery and wonder of faith, providing visual and material examination of visions that cannot be denied.

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.
