O Bicicletário Livre do Centro Cívico de Curitiba será mais uma vez palco de arte independente e música durante a Virada Cultural de Curitiba. Com o apoio da Fundação Cultural de Curitiba, demos mais um passo rumo a propagação de atividades independentes de música, design, fotografia e artes plásticas.
Aparentemente é sim a nova geração cultural fervendo, querendo se mostrar. O que é simplismente genial pois com o apoio dos coletivos, criadores e artistas envolvidos no festival "Fora da Casinha" durante 2010, foi possível formular esse evento que acontecerá dias 6 e 7 de novembro, das 14h as 20h.
A arte do cartaz impresso e digital teve dedos dos artistas Juliana Luz e Fernando Rosenbaum.
Quem assina a produção é:
Tertúlia Produçöes Culturais,
Varal de Idéias e
Instituto Diamante Verde.

Zeitgeist: Moving Forward (Watch Trailer)
“ECONOMISTS TODAY ARE, IN FACT, NOT ECONOMISTS AT ALL. THEY ARE PROPAGANDISTS OF MONEY VALUE. THIS SYSTEM IS MORE WASTEFUL THAN EVERY OTHER SYSTEM IN THE HISTORY OF THE PLANET. SO YOU ARE REALLY DEALING WITH NOT AN ECONOMIC SYSTEM BUT I WOULD GO SO FAR AS TO SAY AN ANTI-ECONOMIC SYSTEM.”
Dr. John McMurtry, Author: “The Cancer Stage of Capitalism”
“IN THE PAST, THE MAIN THREAT TO HUMAN SURVIVAL WAS NATURE.
TODAY IT IS CULTURE...WHAT WE ARE DOING TO EACH OTHER.”
Dr. James Gilligan, Psychiatrist - Harvard Medical School
“WHAT WE FACE NOW OVER THE NEXT 20-30 YEARS IS A FUNDAMENTAL CHANGE OF THE LIFE WE
HAVE KNOWN FOR THE LAST CENTURY. IT IS A TURNING POINT IN HISTORY.”
Dr. Colin Campbell, ASPO International
“WE ARE NOW BECOMING AWARE OF HOW FUNDAMENTALLY SOCIAL HUMAN BEINGS ARE AND
THE ECONOMIC THEORY WE HAVE WORKED WITH FOR THE LAST FEW GENERATIONS IS BEING
CHALLENGED BY A FIELD OF EXPERIMENTAL AND BEHAVIORAL ECONOMICS.”
Richard Wilkinson, Professor Emeritus at the University of Nottingham
“WAR, POVERTY, CORRUPTION, HUNGER, MISERY, HUMAN SUFFERING WILL NOT CHANGE IN A MONETARY SYSTEM. THAT IS, THERE WILL BE VERY LITTLE SIGNIFICANT CHANGE. IT’S GOING TO TAKE THE REDESIGN OF OUR CULTURE AND VALUES AND IT HAS TO BE RELATED TO THE RE-
SOURCES OF THE EARTH.”
Jacque Fresco, The Venus Project
Zeitgeist: Moving Forward, by director Peter Joseph, is a feature length documentary work which will present 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”.
This film will feature experts in the fields of public health, anthropology, neurobiology, economics, en- ergy, technology, social science and other relevant subjects which relate to social operation and culture. The three central themes of the work are Human Behavior, Monetary Economics, and Applied Science. Put together the work creates a model of understanding the current social paradigm; why it is critical to move out of it - coupled with a new, radical, yet practical social approach based on advanced under- standings which would resolve the current social woes facing the world today.
One of the unique attributes of this work, which separates it in style from most documentaries, is that it has a parallel dramatic/cinematic theme, with notable actors, which abstractly plays out various ges- tures related to the overall message of the film. The work also vigorously employs numerous 2d and 3d visual abstracts/animations, while returning to the standard, traditional documentary orientation as the foundation.
Zeitgeist: Moving Forward is to be released in 60+ countries and in 20+ languages starting January 15th 2011. This large scale release is not associated with any major distributor. Part of the counter-culture ex- pression of this approach is to bypass all corporate media involvement and utilize independent groups, in a non-profit manner, which will show the work in their respective regions. Most of these groups are in affiliation with various activist communities, including “The Zeitgeist Movement”, which is a sustain- ability advocacy group seeking a social transition into a new socioeconomic paradigm, away from the growing distortion of the monetary system and its consequences.
Zeitgeist: Moving Forward is a non-commercial project, which means it will be available for free acquisi- tion via internet in both online viewing form and full DVD download. ZeitgeistMovingForward.com will also have a physical $5.00 DVD available in mid to late January.
The Global Theatrical Premiere will be presented by The Artivist Film Festival organization on January 15th 2011 in Los Angeles, CA
The director, producer, writer, cinematographer, composer, editor and narrator of the work, Peter Joseph, was inadvertently brought into recognition within the documentary film community with his award winning, controversial, 2007 work “Zeitgeist: The Movie” which obtained over 100,000,000 views online during the first year of its publication. This film was not a film at all in its original conception, but become one after it achieved global acclaim.
In 2008, a sequel to the work, entitled “Zeitgeist: Addendum”, was premiered at the Artivist Film Festival in Hollywood CA. As with its predecessor, the award winning “Addendum” was a huge viral internet phenomenon obtaining over 50,000,000 views within its first year.
After the release of this sequel, Joseph then founded a social movement inspired by the public reaction - called “The Zeitgeist Movement”. This global organization, with now over half a million subscribers across 200 countries, works to begin a transition of culture into a new sustainable eco- nomic paradigm and Zeitgeist: Moving Forward is, in part, a media expression of the same focus. “The Zeitgeist Movement” is an extension of “The Venus Project”- an organization established by industrial designer - Jacque Fresco - which is also featured in the film.
“Zeitgeist: Moving Forward” is the third installment in what has now become a cultural film series project which continues to consider the current “Zeitgeist” - which means “The Spirit or Aware- ness of the Time” or culture.
