Most films at DOC NYC are shown once, but “The Fourth Kingdom” is scheduled for two screenings. Why?
In the first minutes of this documentary cinema verité, it looks like we are in for a story about garbage in Mexico and the people who take care of it. But as the film progresses more and more layers of truth and mystery are uncovered, with one of them being that the film actually takes place in New York City. But the reason the film is winning awards and catching attention is that it documents the three great crises of our time.
