Hitchens and Margolis Square Off in Debate

The screening of the award-winning film will be immediately followed by a debate between Christopher Hitchens and Eric S. Margolis zeroing in on issues raised in the feature-length film.

Free beer will be available courtesy of the Brooklyn Brewery.

CRITICAL PRAISE FOR AMERICAN ZEITGEIST

On April 29, American Zeitgeist won the top award in the Documentary Feature category at the 2006 Houston International Film Festival, out of hundreds of submissions.

"So much of the discussion surrounding 9/11 has remained within an exceptionalist framework, allowing it to be seen in an ahistorical, isolated context as the actions of pure evil visited upon an unknowing and innocent American public. American Zeitgeist situates 9/11 within a long and ongoing set of historico-political dynamics and tensions dating back to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979. What we see in this film, through the commentary of policy makers, journalists, cultural analysts, and historians, is a volatile mix of strategic failures, short-sighted visions on all sides, and a host of painfully disparate views that have come to characterize this increasingly dangerous conflict."

"A must-see!"

"Christopher Hitchens and free beer? That is like advertising a Fourth of July party with fireworks and free gasoline. Where do I sign up?"
