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.

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.
