OPENING FILM!

ZEITGEIST ADDENDUM

Director Peter Joseph

8:00PM Thursday, October 2, 2008

(Winner of the 2008 Artivist Spirit Award – Best Feature)

Opening Film and Q & A with the Director

Premiering his highly anticipated sequel to “Zeitgeist.” The failure of our world to resolve the issue of war, poverty, and corruption, rests within a gross ignorance about what guides human behavior to begin with. ‘Zeitgeist-Addendum’ addresses the true source of the instability in our society, while offering the only fundamental, long term solution. Director Peter Joseph has the ability to take risky subject matter and turn it into a visually, emotionally, and intellectually compelling case for a “greater point of view.” “Millions of people gravitated toward Peter’s first film. We are excited that this year’s Artivist Film Festival will provide a platform to once again, pique the curiosity of millions of viewers and continue the dialogue about topics concerning citizens worldwide,” stated Artivist Co-Founder Dr. Bettina Wolff.
