Cave of Forgotten Dreams

If you like art history, you might like this. In this case the history goes back 30,000 years.

Werner Herzog has made a 3D documentary film about cave paintings in a particular cave in southern France. The film is in limited release (at the Arclight in LA). You can see a trailer and some short blips on IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi2843843865/

As you might know, because of the deterioration of the paintings simply caused by people visiting these caves, they are becoming off limits to almost all of us. I’ve been lucky enough to see cave art in person and the works are quite extraordinary. This film may be the only way most of us will experience this art. In the future, even filmmakers will not be allowed down there.
