World Premiere of Werner Herzog film “Cave of Forgotten Dreams” at TIFF

It appears the visionary German film director and 2010 CWA participant Werner Herzog has also embraced 3D technology. Herzog’s latest film, “Cave of Forgotten Dreams,” provides audiences with rare footage of the Chauvet caves of southern France, which contain some of the oldest known images of mankind. Since the cave was discovered in 1994, access has been extremely limited due to concerns that overexposure might damage the drawings. Herzog is therefore one of few individuals who have been fortunate enough to see the art in person, and was given special permission to film the caves using lights that emit no heat.  The film was inspired by a 2008 New Yorker article about the caves by Judith Thurman, and will be screened at the Toronto International Film Festival, September 9-19, 2010
