In late 2009, Charles Robinson was able to interview Peter Joseph, the creator of Zeitgeist: The Movie, Zeitgeist: Addendum, Zeitgeist: Moving Forward, several lectures and a presentation; Founder of The Zeitgeist Movement and a friend of Jack Fresco, in his home.
He described himself and his life in details in what is likely a rare interview.
He was kind enough to provide him with previously unreleased media and video and in turn Charles did his best to create a documentary (albeit kinda poor in quality compared to his work!) that would help express who this person is.
Peter Joseph was born in North Carolina to a middle class family. He has said in interviews that his mother’s role as a social worker helped shape his opinion and impressions of American life.
He later moved to New York to attend art school. Currently he lives and works in New York City as a freelance film editor/composer/producer for various industries.
Due to the controversial content of his films and a desire to keep his day job private, he has not released his full name to the public.
