Werner Herzog Goes 3D with 'Caves of Forgotten Dreams'

by Stephen Rowland

The wildly eclectic Bavarian, my personal favorite of all film directors, Werner Herzog will be releasing a new documentary in 2011. It is called Caves of Forgotten Dreams and has already wowed audiences at the Toronto International Film Festival, screened before a nonchalant Herzog had even seen the finished product.

And yes, it’s in 3D.

The film concerns the recently discovered Chauvet cave system in Southern France, which has never been filmed before, and was decorated with cave drawings 35,000 years ago—the oldest known to man.

IFC has picked the film up for theatrical distribution in the United States, and it will also be airing on the History Channels. I’ll keep you informed of the release dates once I’m privy to them!
