Zeitgeist, the Movie is a 2007 documentary film by Peter Joseph about historical and modern occurrences, including the origins of Christianity, the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, and the banking system. It was officially released online on June 18, 2007 on zeitgeistmovie.com.

A sequel, Zeitgeist: Addendum, advocates a technology-based social system influenced by the ideas of Jacque Fresco and The Venus Project.

The film opens with animated abstract visualizations, film and stock footage, a cartoon and audio quotes. The latter include part of a speech by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoché about spirituality, followed by a series of musically synchronized clips of war and explosions culminating with the September 11 attacks. This is followed by a sequence of clips showing war casualties. The film's title screen is displayed, and Jordan Maxwell's Inner World of the Occult is quoted, which criticizes the honesty of religious institutions, governments, and banking cartels which are alleged to "have misled [the people] away from the true and divine presence in the universe." The film's introduction ends with a portion of the late comedian George Carlin's monologue on religion accompanied by an animated cartoon.
