Zeitgeist Moving Forward


(see the trailer below)

ZEITGEIST: MOVING FORWARD

Zeitgeist: Moving Forward, by director Peter Joseph, is a feature length documentary work which will
present a case for a needed transition out of the current socio-economic monetary paradigm which
governs the entire world society. This subject matter will transcend the issues of cultural relativism and
traditional ideology and move to relate the core, empirical "life ground" attributes of human and social
survival, extrapolating those immutable natural laws into a new sustainable social paradigm called a "Resource-Based Economy".

This film will feature experts in the fields of public health, anthropology, neurobiology, economics, energy, technology, social science and other relevant subjects which relate to social operation and culture.
The three central themes of the work are Human Behavior, Monetary Economics, and Applied Science.
Put together the work creates a model of understanding the current social paradigm; why it is critical to
move out of it - coupled with a new, radical, yet practical social approach based on advanced understandings which would resolve the current social woes facing the world today.

One of the unique attributes of this work, which separates it in style from most documentaries, is that it has a parallel dramatic/cinematic theme, with notable actors, which abstractly play out various gestures related to the overall message of the film. The work also vigorously employs numerous 2D and 3D visual abstracts/animations, while returning to the standard, traditional documentary orientation as the foundation.

The 3rd chapter in this thought-provoking and controversial series will screen at The Labia Theatre from

24 - 30 April 2009
at The LABIA THEATRE
(68 Orange Street, Gardens, Cape Town, ZA)

For those who missed either (or both) of the Zeitgeist Day screenings of Peter Joseph’s ZEITGEIST, THE MOVIE (March 2008) and ZEITGEIST: ADDENDUM (March 2009), they will be screened twice daily from the 24th until the 30th of April at the Labia Theater (Orange Street).

ZEITGEIST, THE MOVIE is the mind-blowing documentary by Peter Joseph, and is the most viewed motion picture on the internet (multi million views a month). The award-winning movie takes a staggering look at the lies sold to the world via media, politicians, bankers and those
standing to benefit.

Its follow-up, ZEITGEIST: ADDENDUM, focuses on the shocking truth behind the monetary system, and options on changing this corrupt enslaving method of life with an entirely new system as proposed by The Venus Project.

ZEITGEIST DAY
Global Event
Sunday 15 March 2009



@ THE LABIA THEATRE
Lifestyle On Kloof Centre, Kloof Street, Gardens, Cape Town, ZA


ZEITGEIST: ADDENDUM

'Zeitgeist, The Movie' and 'Zeitgeist: Addendum' were created to communicate highly important
social understandings which most humans are generally not aware of.
The first film focuses on suppressed historical & modern information about currently dominant
social institutions, while also exploring what could be in store for humanity if the power structures
at large continue their patterns of self-interest, corruption, and consolidation.

The second film, Zeitgeist: Addendum, attempts to locate the root causes of this pervasive social
corruption, while offering a solution. This solution is not based on politics, morality, laws, or any
other "establishment" notions of human affairs, but rather on a modern, non-superstitious based
understanding of what we are and how we align with nature, to which we are a part. The work advo-
cates a new social system which is updated to present day knowledge, highly influenced by the
life long work of Jacque Fresco and The Venus Project.


ZEITGEIST: ADDENDUM
will be screened on Z-Day
Sunday 15 March

with planned extended shows at The Labia Theatre of both
ZEITGEIST: THE MOVIE &
ZEITGEIST: ADDENDUM

"This is the single most powerful and informative movie about society's treatment of animals.
A must see for anyone who cares enough to know"
- Woody Harrelson




earth.ling (urth ling), n. 1. An inhabitant of earth.
Webster's Unabridged Dictionary, 1989

EARTHLINGS is a feature length documentary about humanity's absolute dependence on animals (for pets, food, clothing, entertainment, and scientific research) but also illustrates our complete disrespect for these so-called "non-human providers." The film is narrated by Academy Award nominee JOAQUIN PHOENIX (Gladiator / Walk The Line) and features music by the critically acclaimed platinum artist MOBY.

With an in-depth study into pet stores, puppy mills and animals shelters, as well as factory farms, the leather and fur trades, sports and entertainment industries, and finally the medical and scientific profession, EARTHLINGS uses hidden cameras and never before seen footage to chronicle the day-to-day practices of some of the largest industries in the world, all of which rely entirely on animals for profit. Powerful, informative and thought-provoking, EARTHLINGS is by far the most comprehensive documentary ever produced on the correlation between nature, animals, and human economic interests. There are many worthy animal rights films available, but this one transcends the setting.
EARTHLINGS cries to be seen.

If you believe in TRUTH and all of its forms, you owe it to yourself to see Earthlings.
Highly recommended!

The mind-blowing documentary ZEITGEIST by Peter Joseph is the most viewed motion picture on the internet (2.1 million views a month). The award-winning movie takes a staggering look at the lies sold to the world via media, politicians and those standing to benefit.

15 March 2008 is Z-DAY, a global event screening ZEITGEIST in as many locations as possible, and gives interested viewers the chance to see this on the big screen
(without the compressed quality-, bandwidth-, and connection disadvantages).

From religion and the 9/11 attacks, to the Bush family and the world bank, this is not just a conspiracy theorist's dream come true, but a shocking exposition on how the world's population is being manipulated.

Just like you needn't believe everything you see on TV, it is up to you to absorb the information in ZEITGEIST and process it as you choose - but, even if you have a pre-conceived idea on what you'll encounter with this documentary, the revelations from structural architects and firemen on the high probability that the World Trade Centre and adjacent buildings we're brought down by controlled detonations is enough to turn your blood cold!

On Z-DAY, ZEITGEIST will get two screenings (6pm & 8pm) at the LABIA THEATRE (68 Orange Street, Gardens, Cape Town, South Africa), with additional screenings in the weeks thereafter.
Tickets: R30 each
