Storyline

A feature length documentary work which presents a case for a needed transition out of the current socioeconomic monetary paradigm which governs the entire world society. This subject matter will transcend the issues of cultural relativism and traditional ideology and move to relate the core, empirical "life ground" attributes of human and social survival, extrapolating those immutable natural laws into a new sustainable social paradigm called a "Resource-Based Economy".

opening title card: In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with its social function, art must show the world as changeable, and help to change it. - Ernst Fischer
voiceover-collage: ...deadly riots over the government's plan to avoid defaulting on its loans... is that the unemployment keeps rising, and it has to keep rising just because it has an excess supply of goods... because this is all borrowed money that our kids... and our debt is owned by banks...

Another thought-provoking Peter Joseph film.
25 January 2011 | by (greece) – See all my reviews

Zeitgeist addendum's "venus project" chapter, seemed rushed, utopian and just flat out hippie nonsense. "Moving forward" approaches the subject in a more grown up and sensible manner. I can't believe I'm saying this, but you've made a believer out of me.

But inherently that is where the problem lies. I live in Greece and things are pretty dire at the moment. And because of that fact I've become a bit of an analyst and investigator. Hence my viewing of this film and appreciating the message. To sum up, because of the present situation, I'm more susceptible to this type of proposal and to change in general.

I hope I'm wrong, but i don't think that this film will have a mass appeal in societies that are well off at the present. And that's where this type of change needs to be instigated. Solely for that reason I gave it 8*. Otherwise it would have been a flat 10.

I recommend multiple viewings before critiquing this one...

UPDATE: Now, two months after "moving forward" premiered, after heeding my own advice, I fully understand both "Addendum and Moving Forward". I give both 10/10. Nice to see, finally, recognition from main-stream media (mainly Russia today).
