The film begins and ends with excerpts from a speech by Jiddu Krishnamurti. The remainder of the film is narrated by Peter Joseph and divided into four parts, which are prefaced by on-screen quotations from Krishnamurti, John Adams, Bernard Lietaer, and Thomas Paine, respectively.
Part I covers the process of fractional-reserve banking as illustrated in Modern Money Mechanics, by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. The film suggests that society is manipulated into economic slavery through debt-based monetary policies by requiring individuals to submit for employment in order to pay off their debt.
Part II has an interview with John Perkins, author of Confessions of an Economic Hitman, who says he was involved in the subjugation of Latin American economies by multinational corporations and the United States government
Part III introduces futurist Jacque Fresco and The Venus Project and asserts a need to move away from current socioeconomic paradigms.
Part IV suggests that the primary reason for what the film sees as society's social values ("warfare, corruption, oppressive laws, social stratification, irrelevant superstitions, environmental destruction, and a despotic, socially indifferent, profit-oriented ruling class") is a collective ignorance of "the emergent and symbiotic aspects of natural law".Videos
#3Zeitgeist: The Movie
DID YOU KNOW?
Watching a 30-minute documentary on a laptop feels longer than watching a 60-minute documentary film on a flat screen, said Edward J. Delaney, a journalist, author, and a filmmaker. Delaney attests to the dawning of a new age of micro-documentary filmmaking. This trend leaves filmmakers no choice but to adapt and produce contents that are shorter, more straightforward, and more engaging to catch the audience’s short attention span. A significant milestone in the history of filmmaking is the invention of cameras by the Lumiere brothers in 1895 and today, we call the first films as “Slice of life” and the coming together of theoretical essentials of documentaries but what really catalyzed the creation of these films? According to Bill Nicholas, it came out in response to fiction as this kind of filmmaking aims to touch the nonfiction and capture the reality—no wonder it is considered as a powerful means of conveying social messages to the world as they usually reflect a country’s culture. Perhaps another reason to engage oneself in these films is its ability to provide a great avenue for intelligent conversations that stimulate critical thinking. Metacritic published a list of documentary films that scored the highest, with Best Keep Secret landing on the first spot. From the invention of the first photographs of horses in motion, the industry has undergone so many developments, resulting to different film genres, styles, and cinematography.

This is the story of the Hitler survival myth and how the confusion that surrounded his death in a Berlin bunker led to rumours that he escaped. Eisenhower believed he was still alive saying “we have been unable to unearth one tangible piece of evidence of Hitler’s death.” Newly unearthed FBI files reveal thousands of alleged Hitler sightings from Ireland to Venezuela. With rumours of his escape persisting for decades, and growing evidence that Nazis were hiding out in the jungles and remote corners of Latin America, today the alleged survival of the Fuhrer remains one of the worlds most popular and treasured myths.Videos
