Zeitgeist: Moving Forward, by director Peter Joseph, is a feature length documentary work which presents a case for a needed transition out of the current socioeconomic monetary paradigm which governs the entire world society.

Peter Joseph

Peter Joseph was born in North Carolina to a middle class family. The son of a mailman and a social worker, he began his creative interests with music at a young age. Later, seeking a career in percussion, he moved to New York initially to attend a Conservatory, only to drop out after an inability to afford the tuition. Currently he lives and works in New York City and focuses on media related fields, including music composition, editing, post-production and other A/V related. He is also a former private equity trader, which he often comments upon as being his "introduction to the wasteful, destructive system known as Wall Street".

After the release of Zeitgeist: Addendum, he founded "The Zeitgeist Movement", [ www.thezeitgeistmovement.com ] which is a social sustainability organization with members now in nearly every country. His work with The Movement is now a large part of his daily activities - giving lectures and helping to produce relevant media/materials to spread the interest for a new social system- called a Resource-Based Economy.

"They used to charge $5 a DVD and $75 for a seat at the convention (1100 attended at the last one) not to mention the legions of donations from around the world. "

1) Peter's STILL charges 5$ with is NOTHING and
2) they (TZM) NEVER charged 75$ for any Z event. The most I have seen was 12$ for the Zdays...
3) And The Zeitgeist Movement has nothing to do with the film series.
4) TZM doesnt take donations. You are thinking of TVP, which again has nothing to do with The Zeitgeist Film Series

"the previous Zeitgeist films were critically destroyed"

This is a seriously suspect and biased comment, loaded with a subtext of true disdain for The Zeitgeist Film Series. Not only have Zeitgeist: The Movie & Zeitgeist Addendum NEVER been debunked outside the whining subculture who simply have an Ax to grid or a religion to uphold, the sources provided are acute, clean and thorough. Here is the Z1 200+ page companion guide:

It covers EVERYTHING. This is the most important film series in history.

"They used to charge $5 a DVD" - May I ask you why you say $5 per DVD is substantial amount of money when other distributor charges at least $25 per DVD? Where's the logic in that? Are you saying the creator of this movie deserve to receive ZERO amount of money for his work?

Everyone needs to keep an open mind and think for themselves as well when reading your comment, IMO.

It has some interesting ideas and certainly food for thought

.However, the previous Zeitgeist films were critically destroyed, mainly because the facts they presented were completely untrue, taken out of context or utterly unverifiable.

The only danger is that, to disagree with Zeitgeist you then become labelled as indoctrinated or part of the "establishment".

Luckily, this next edition focuses on some really interesting issues and presents actual solutions. It should be watched definetely but equally it should be regarded with a degree of academic skepticism.

For instance some of the Marx ideas are outdated and Karl Marx himself actually came up with a revised system which the film makers do not mention. Also the Venus Project has now split from the Zeitgeist movement.

It would not be fair to not mention that the makers of the film do in fact receive a substantial amount of money for these volumes. They used to charge $5 a DVD and $75 for a seat at the convention (1100 attended at the last one) not to mention the legions of donations from around the world.

But watch it and keep an open mind.

hey Peter, I understand u are being disappointed by Jacque, but please, don't step back. We need a knowledgeable, gifted speaker and contributor like you. U are the founder, remember? ;)

Very well produced, an excellent possible future. All in all a great movie, loved it.

An update to my earlier comment. Since watching this film, I've been inspired to watch the earlier video productions and debates featuring Peter Joseph, and Jacque Fresco of The Venus Project. For me, the "Moving Forward" film remains the best way to get an overview of TZM. I don't believe everything that TZM presents as fact (there's a huge USA focus to much of it) and I have concerns around the viability of the cashless, resource-managed, technologically-driven future. However, the discussion of the causes of disease, and corrupt big business and governments rings pretty true. On this basis, the film is worth watching. You can draw your own conclusions regarding the socially engineered future that TZM proposes. If nothing else, it is thought-provoking and a good source of material for discussion.

We made an event here in Illinois. It was a free screening. We also have been writing tunes about this stuff. Check it out!

I hadn't seen the film yet, and I was arguing with a team member of my startup about how the role of monetary gain was minimal to the company. The service that we provide to our consumers was all important. I saw the film, stopped arguing, and sent him the link. He does not completely agree, but he understands my angle finally.

Great film!!! Recommending to everyone I know!!

This was a real surprise for me. Excellent production and the messages are all vitally important. A must-see for everyone.

Glad to see this important documentary on VODO. Thanks a lot! Everyone who didn't see it, should watch it. Seeing and thinking about ZG movies can really wake you up. I know it.

The Zeitgeist Movement: For addle minded, greedy children who understand nothing about human nature, economics, genealogy, technology, or motivation.

Oh, and lets not forget that the entire thing is a thinly veiled form of a dystopian nightmare.

I was really inspired by the Zeitgeist Movement and Peter Joseph. He is why I decided to become a filmmaker. Now the man who is the leader of “Fair Use” claim is threatening to sue many other filmmakers who have claimed fair use on some of his material, which he originally borrowed to begin with. He has also removed the ability to share the video on YouTube. Really bizarre! I don’t know what is happening with him, but it is very disappointing to all of the documentary filmmakers that looked up to him.

Anyone can upload/download/post/screen/copy/give away without any needed permission from me. One should be critical of rumors they hear and should take time to think about such things before parroting them publicly as though they are fact.

I loved this quote in the start
In decaying Society,Art if it is truthful must also reflect decay And Unless It wants to break the faith with its social function.Art must show world is Changeable and Help to change it
-Ernst Fischer

This film made me think about everything.If that is the motive of this film its certainly achieved.
