"War, poverty, corruption, hunger, misery, human suffering will NOT change in a monetary system....Its going to take the redesign of our culture and values and it has to be related to the resources of the earth."

This Sunday: Manson's Hall Feb 27. It is a long film, it's a Sunday night, so we're starting early: 6:30 pm. There will be an intermission and gourmet treats by Elizabeth Anderson. This is a fundraiser for the SCCA, admission by donation.
“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. It stands on its own, doesn't matter whether you have seen the two previous ones.
The director, producer, writer, cinematographer, composer, editor and narrator of the work, Peter Joseph, was inadvertently brought into recognition within the documentary film community with his award winning, controversial, 2007 work “Zeitgeist: The Movie” which obtained over 100,000,000 views online during the first year of its publication.
Zeitgeist: Moving Forward was released in 60+ countries and in 20+ languages on January 15th 2011. This large scale release is not associated with any major distributor. Part of the counter-culture expression of this approach is to bypass all corporate media involvement and utilize independent groups.
This film features experts in the fields of public health, anthropology, neurobiology, economics, energy, technology, social science etc as well as entertaining animation and visual imagery.
