This movie speaks for itself. The whole series is available to check out on the Zeitgeist website.
Since the original public performance of “Zeitgeist” in 2007, there has been an evolution of intent which has manifested into an on-going film expression consisting now of multiple productions. While each film stands on its own with regard to content, the Zeitgeist Film Series as a whole has a dedicated social intent to create awareness about the world we share, the problems we face, along with what we can do to make it better as a collective species.
As the definition of “Zeitgeist” states, we are dealing with the “intellectual/spiritual/cultural awareness of the time” and it is the goal of this project to explore what makes us who we are, how we relate, what we are doing and what we should be doing if we wish to live in a peaceful, abundant, and healthy global community.
Paired with this is the interest in a free, uninhibited information/media project. The Zeitgeist Film Series is not a commercial project in that it is designed for public consumption without inhibitions such as common copyright limitations. All films, while technically copyright to combat financial abuse and exploitation, are universally available for duplication, broadcast, screening events and digital distribution without the need for permission. However, this Project is only possible to continue if people do purchase the DVD or support the download Torrents via Donation.
As alluded to above, the history of “Zeitgeist: The Movie” is not what many assume. The original Zeitgeist was not a film, but a performance piece, which consisted of a vaudevillian style multi-media event using recorded music, live instruments and video. [The only known (camera phone) recording is posted here.] The event was given over a 6-night period in New York City and then, without any interest to professionally release or produce the work, was “tossed” up on the Internet arbitrarily. The work was never designed as a film or even a documentary in a traditional sense – it was designed as a creative, provoking, emotionally driven expression, full of artistic extremity and heavily stylized gestures. (For more about the evolution of “Zeitgeist, The Movie” please see the Q & A at www.zeitgeistthefilm.com )
However, once online, an unexpected flood of interest began to generate. Within 6 months over 50 Million views were recorded on Google Video counters (before they were reset for some reason). The current combined estimates put the number of Internet views at over 200 million as of 2011. Suddenly “Zeitgeist” the event, became “Zeitgeist: The Movie”.
