In 2009 a man named Charles Robinson was given the opportunity to interview Peter Joseph, the mysterious and secretive founder of the Zeitgeist Movement and the creator of the two documentaries Zeitgeist: The Movie and Zeitgeist: Addendum (and later Zeitgeist: Moving Forward). In the interview, which was conducted in Joseph’s home, he went into detail about his life and talked extensively about the roots of his movement.
Peter Joseph also provided Charles Robinson with some previously unreleased media and so Robinson had a go at editing the interview and this new footage into a documentary which he released straight to the internet for people to share as they please. Some people have since speculated that Charles Robinson doesn’t exist and that Joseph had actually interviewed himself.
