Get ready for Herzog's "Cave of Forgotten Dreams"

Classes have started and it is still cold with lots of snow around. In other words, the world is looking  very bleak right now and the semester is seriously kicking my butt. But wait. I see some light. Ah...its a new film by Werner Herzog: Cave of Forgotten Dreams. Not only that, it is about some of world's first art pieces, in Chauvet-Pont-d'Arc Cave in Southern France. These cave paintings date to about 30,000-32,000 years ago, and were only discovered in 1994. Herzog is absolutely the perfect guy to make a documentary about some of humanity's first artwork. But he didn't stop it there. This movie is in 3D!! Take that James Cameron.

The movie is expected to start some time this spring. Here is the trailer:

Oh and if you haven't yet seen the spectacular, Encounters at the End of the World - please go rent it and see it. Here is an earlier post about it.
