‘Zeitgeist: Moving Forward’ Launches Today In 60 Countries

If you're wondering what movie to see this weekend, you would do well to avoid Hollywood pulp like The Green Hornet and instead check out the latest in Peter Joseph's Zeitgeist series of films -- the first to receive a "real" theatrical release. It's still out of the mainstream so don't expect to find it at your local mall cineplex, but it is screening in a lot of places (click here for a global screening map). Of course Joseph is not without his critics (most recently because Jared Loughner was reportedly influenced by Zeitgeist), especially in connection with The Venus Project, but at the very least his film will make you think, unlike, say Little Fockers, also on wide release this weekend...  Here's the trailer:

Zeitgeist: Moving Forward

Peter Joseph has created another sequel to the ever-popular Zeitgeist. Entitled Zeitgeist: Moving Forward, the movie will be released in 60+ countries and in 20+ languages starting January 15th 2011. Here's the official description:

Though he may not need to convince these people, many his ardent followers, it will indeed take a restructuring of the mind for those unfamiliar with Fresco’s work to realistically accept the ideas he proposes of a new global society that has given up money and property in favor of a shared, sustainable, technology-driven community.

The caustic skepticism can already be heard, critics crying out with pointed fingers, decreeing communism, socialism, insanity! But as Fresco himself will tell you, communism is still just another system with banks and social stratification. The kind of world he imagines for the future is much different. To ease the transition, The Zeitgeist Movement provides a wealth of dizzying information detailing why a new global system is not only preferred, but necessary, and just how we can get there.
