In January 2011, over 200 independent groups will host theatrical screenings of the documentary, “Zeitgeist: Moving Forward,” in 30 languages across 60 countries.
The ARTIVIST Film Festival organization will present the global theatrical premiere alongside Filmmaker Peter Joseph at the JACCC in Los Angeles. The film will then move to the Laemmle Music Hall in Beverly Hills for a five day theater run.
The three central themes of “Zeitgeist: Moving Forward” are Human Behavior, Monetary Economics, and Applied Science. Put together, the film creates a model that enables understanding of the current social paradigm and why it is critical to move out of it - coupled with a new, radical yet practical approach, extrapolating from immutable natural laws into a new sustainable social paradigm called a “Resource-Based Economy.”
The award-winning, controversial, 2007 work “Zeitgeist: The Movie” Premiered at the ARTIVIST Film Festival and obtained over 100,000,000 views online during the first year of its publication. In 2008, a sequel to the work, entitled “Zeitgeist: Addendum,” also Premiered at the ARTIVIST Film Festival in Hollywood, CA. As with its predecessor, the award winning “Addendum” was a huge viral internet phenomenon obtaining over 50,000,000 views within its first year.
“Zeitgeist Moving Forward” is the third installment in what has now become a cultural film series project which continues to consider the current “Zeitgeist” –which means “The Spirit or Awareness of the Time” or culture.
