Cave of Forgotton Dreams
Saturday, October 1, 2011 at 9:30 PM (PDT)
Palo Alto, CA
It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that visionary auteur Werner Herzog’s latest film is a transcendent experience more than it is a traditional documentary. Herzog uses 3D to "capture the intentions of the painters” who worked 32,000 years ago inside the Chauvet-Pont-d'Arc cave in France. Suggesting the motion of horses, rhinos and bison in their tracing of the contours and slants of the cave wall with painted lines (and torch-light), these painters created what Herzog suggests is a "proto-cinema". Threatened by a nuclear plant, the Chauvet caves are off-limits to the public, so this film, branded with Herzog’s trademark brilliance and strangeness, may be the closest you’ll ever get to these Paleolithic masterpieces.
Total Run Time: 90 minutes
