Peter is a pioneer in free, open-distribution media and his work supports non-profit free online viewing and free downloads.

Peter Joseph’s new book, The New Human Rights Movement will be released 21st March 2016 (a few days before Z-Day) and is about how we can design our way to a better society. He has also recently released a trailer to his much-anticipated new film series, Interreflections, described as narrative-based, live-action fantasy style that inspires the audience to think differently about the world we have today… and the world we could have tomorrow.
