The first Werner Herzog 3D film will hit the cinema screens this spring, and the new trailer paves the way for it. The 89 minute documentary, Cave of Forgotten Dreams, brings Herzog down into the Chauvet-Pont-d’Arc Cave discovered in 1994. Located in Southern France, this cave, normally kept off limits to the public, houses the oldest cave paintings ever discovered. We’re talking paintings dating back over 30,000 years and all still preserved in pristine condition. Just as Lascaux left Picasso in awe, the Chauvet cave paintings inspired Herzog to use 3D technology to capture the charcoal figures, the earliest expression of our artistic yearnings.
