Zeitgeist | Requiem by Peter Joseph (trailer)


This is the official Film Trailer for “Zeitgeist | Requiem” by Peter Joseph. Fourth in the series, Peter Joseph continues to explore the incompatibility of modern capitalism with future human survival. Departing from the ideological dogmas of today, the work focuses on the development of systems science, acknowledging the core properties of market economics. It examines how, if humanity expects to solve the problems of destabilizing inequality and environmental decline, a new economic model must be developed.

Highly influenced by the work of Stafford Beer, Jay Forrester, Donella Meadows, and others in the modern systems science community, the new film will offer a diagnosis of the current societal order along with a defined solution involving a parallel economy based on cooperative development through a cybernetic approach. This aims to scale out a community-based design revolution that can strategically overcome what he sees as 'the most dangerous element of civilization,' our current economy and the culture it has fostered.

While often dismissed as 'communism,' 'technocracy,' or 'conspiracy theory,' 'Zeitgeist | Requiem' refutes such dogma and propaganda. Instead, it highlights that the problem we face is not some vague ideology or nefarious hidden cabal. Rather, we are victims of a society with specific incentives and procedures that continue to guide human behavior in a destructive direction while masquerading as 'normality.'

The film is set to premiere on March 15, 2024, at the Wilshire Fine Arts Theater in Los Angeles, California.
