Zeitgeist: Beyond the Pale, the 4th installment of the 'Zeitgeist Film
Series', [anticipated release in late 2012 / early 2013] will continue its
exploration of culture - this time from the perspective of what comprises
the values dominant in society today and what defines their merit with
respect to social sustainability.

This defiantly critical work will compare the social norms and established
practices of contemporary society to the largely ignored benchmark of our
scientific reality, illuminating the growing, detrimental separation
between rational, objective and progressive thought and the traditional
practices and presumptions which continue to dominate our societal
operations today.

The focus will be on culturally dominant value systems, beliefs and
institutions, with the challenge proposed: Are your values and beliefs
sustainable? Are the deeply held, conditioned beliefs and reinforced
patterns of behavior common today actually serving to advance our
societies? Or are these beliefs holding back and even corrupting the human
species to an extent that might lead to our extinction?

Zeitgeist: Beyond The Pale, as the title suggests, will move beyond taboo
and social inhibition in form. It will hold nothing sacred except the
interest to consider that dynamic alignment with nature itself in the hope
that our values and practices can be adapted to what actually "works",
exploring the evolutionary baggage which perpetuates the ongoing patterns
of war, imbalance, division, greed, abuse and other characteristics of
modern society that many today often just accept as "givens" for the human

As with the prior film works, this independent production will continue the
free distribution model for maximum exposure. Public DVD Torrents; Free
Online Posting; Free public screenings; Open DVD Copying Permissions are
staples of The Zeitgeist Film Series awareness campaign.

Hi Alicia, I saw the P. Joseph interview with Joe Rogan and he mentioned that "Beyond the Pail" should be out within this year, I'm definately looking forward to it.
