Rain Falls from Earth is a story of courage, a story of survival and a story of eventual triumph over the Communist regime that was responsible for the deaths of over 2 million people. The voices of many Cambodians are heard as they convey their thoughts, ideas and emotions-the very things they were forced to abandon in the "killing fields" of Cambodia. Narrated by Academy Award nominated actor, Sam Waterston, this film gives a voice to those whose lives were senselessly lost.
Sam Waterston received both Oscar® and Golden Globe nominations for his portrayal of reporter Sydney Schanberg in the acclaimed movie, The Killing Fields. Mr. Waterston is also known for his role as District Attorney, Jack McCoy on the hit NBC series, Law & Order, where he has received 3 Emmy nominations for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series.
Take a tour under the Big Top with Trudy Strong, aerial artist, tiger trainer and 50-year circus veteran in Finale. This colorful yet tender documentary combines dramatic historical footage and personal recollections to capture five generations of American circus history in one remarkable family. From the challenges of life on the road to the deep rewards of befriending a family of tigers, Trudy's story sheds new light on the hearts, minds and souls behind the face paint and sequins. A rare opportunity for viewers young and old to see the circus through new eyes.
