You can own your own copy of the award-winning video, “The Fourth World”. Filmed on five continents, The Fourth World has aired on television in several European countries, across the Middle East and has screened at festivals across North America, Asia and Europe and Discovery Channel Europe.
Enter the world of the one billion people living in the Fourth World but let them tell you their own stories. What’s so unique about this film is that it’s not an outsider telling their story, but insiders, telling their own stories. Meet Salma and Tanya in Guatemala City, Felix in Nairobi, and the Alquino Family in Manila. Through them and their stories, you’ll have a much better idea of the billion people at the bottom of the pile.

Books Based on the Film
Bayani’s Bridge and JoJo’s Secret Pocket
Dee Kramer, an author of children’s books, was so moved by the stories that appear in The Fourth World, that she based these two children’s books on a few of the main characters. “Bayani” is based on Jovelyn , a young girl who lives under a bridge in The Philippines, and “JoJo” is based on Felix in Nairobi, Kenya. Beautifully illustrated, these books have been an absolute delight for children, parents and grandparents.
If you want to begin the process of teaching your young ones about poverty in a way that honors and respects the people caught up in the worst of it, then these are the books for you.
