Filmed on five continents, THE FOURTH WORLD takes viewers deep inside the hidden world of slums, a world the United Nations says could triple in the next 30 years. Getting past the statistics is tough. "One Billion" is a figure we cannot wrap our minds around. This compelling film introduces viewers to the individuals who make up this statistic. It soon becomes apparent that these people are no different than anyone else. In fact, it could be argued that anyone who can survive slum life could make it anywhere. THE FORTH WORLD may just change your perspective on slum life, and the chronically poor of the Developing World.
