Are you tired of the dark-lighted, money-stealing, lack-luster approach of modern day 3D film-making? You might want to reconsider, from the looks of Werner Herzog’s documentary Cave of Forgotten Dreams. Set forth in the Chauvet Cave in France, Herzog and his crew set forth on an epic expedition to unveil “the most ancient visual art known to have been created by man.”
Now if you are like me, the novelty of 3D has long worn off by now and you probably avoid it at all costs. But like any approach to film-making and storytelling, breathing new light and originally to it’s medium is worth a look at. Perhaps Herzog is onto something, and for now, 3d has my dollar. What do you think? Find out by watching the trailer and reading the full synopsis below. Expect Cave of Forgotten Dreams out April 29th.
” CAVE OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS, a breathtaking new 3D documentary from the incomparable Werner Herzog (ENCOUNTERS AT THE END OF THE WORLD, GRIZZLY MAN) follows an exclusive expedition into the nearly inaccessible Chauvet Cave in France, home to the most ancient visual art known to have been created by man. A hit at this year’s Toronto Film Festival, CAVE OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS is an unforgettable cinematic experience that provides a unique glimpse of pristine artwork dating back to human hands over 30,000 years ago — almost twice as old as any previous discovery.”
