Zeitgeist, The Movie – Remastered


Zeitgeist (German pronunciation: [ˈtsaɪtɡaɪst] ( listen)) is “the spirit of the times” or “the spirit of the age.” [1] Zeitgeist is the general cultural, intellectual, ethical, spiritual, and/or political climate within a nation or even specific groups, along with the general ambience, morals, sociocultural direction or mood of an era.

The term zeitgeist is from German Zeit– ‘time’ (cognate with English tide and “time”) and Geist– ‘spirit’ (cognate with English ghost).

Zeitgeist: the Movie is a 2007 documentary film by Peter Joseph that asserts a number of ideas, including an artificial, mythological origin of Christianity, alternate theories for the parties responsible for the destruction of the World Trade Center, and finally, claims that a cabal of international bankers are manipulating the international monetary system in order to introduce a unified world government. The film was officially released online on June 18, 2007 on zeitgeistmovie.com. A sequel, Zeitgeist: Addendum, focuses further on the monetary system and advocates a resource-based social system influenced by the ideas of Jacque Fresco and The Venus Project. Following Zeitgeist: Addendum, Peter Joseph created an organization called The Zeitgeist Movement to promote the ideas of Fresco’s Venus Project.  Peter Joseph has publicly stated that The Zeitgeist Movement, while inspired by his film’s content, is not an organization which supports them directly. A third film called Zeitgeist: Moving Forward  is scheduled to be released in Fall 2010. Peter Joseph has stated that its topics will focus on human behavior, technology, and rationality.
