‘The Fourth Dimension’ is a film that gives us a glimpse of enlightenment through the eyes of three one-of-a-kind directors: Harmony Korine, Alexey Fedorchenko and Jan Kwiekinski.
The three filmmakers have created three unique stories that offer up their vision of this higher plane of existence, the Fourth Dimension, each taking his character on a journey that changes the way they see the world and themselves.
In Korine’s film, Val Kilmer is an oddball motivational speaker, who tells us how to broaden our minds and change our perspectives to reach enlightenment (and, of course, the titular the fourth dimension). Fedorchenko introduces us to Grigory, who believes he’s found the fourth dimension, but learns that perhaps this isn’t what he’s truly seeking. In the film’s last chapter, Kwiekinski depicts a group of friends whose search for the fourth dimension takes them through their deserted village and ends with an encounter with someone who is truly the outcast that the friends fancy themselves to be.
