Zeitgeist Film Festival

  • Syracuse Innovators Guild

    3650 James st Suite 111, Syracuse, NY (map)

    43.069275 -76.094345

  • There are three Zeitgeist films available.  The Zeitgeist Movement encourages non-profits to show these films free of charge, and that is what we will be doing.

     

    The material is controversial, and in many cases conspiratorial.

     

    Neither the presenter nor SIG is endorsing the particular messages.  We are merely presenting the information as food for thought and debate. (Ken: "I personally find any ideas that challenge the status quo worth exploring. I think there are both facts and opinions in these movies. The facts are very interesting, and in my humble opinion - the opinions (conclusions drawn) are mostly rubbish.")

     

    While the majority of the information is not "tech intensive" - one proposed "solution" to our societal woes is the formation of a "Resource Based Economy".  Such an economy would depend on technology for nearly every aspect of life.

     

    I hope you will join us.  We will watch the videos slightly out of order, placing their first movie last (as it is the most controversial and the least relevant to technologists).  If no one is still present when that movie is due to start, we will probably just skip it.

     

    First up: Zeitgeist Addendum

    then: Zeitgeist Next Steps

    and finally - potentially:  Zeitgeist the Movie

     

    As usual, the presentation will be free, and SIG requests those who can, to donate between $2 and $20, to help support the space.

    I'm going to give it about another hour or so. If no one signs up - I'll cancel the event. No biggie.

    Ideas that challenge the status quo are worth exploring. Rambling, incoherent Internet conspiracy theory as epic YouTube video is not. Sorry.

      these are full feature documentaries on Netflix - there was some early stuff released on the Internet... but it has gotten better. Each to their own though.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
