Werner Herzog, Cave of Forgotten Dreams

A phonecall with the pioneer of the Seventies New German Cinema,Werner Herzog who has outpaced his contemporaries Wim Wenders and the late Rainer Werner Fassbinder with internationally successful dramas (Aguirre The Wrath of God, Fitzcarraldo, Port of Call New Orleans) and documentaries like Grizzly Man and La Souffriere. With Cave of Forgotten Dreams Herzog has used 3D for the first time to go where few are able: the 32,000 year old Chauvet Neanderthal caves discovered less than 20 years ago. These cave paintings are considered the oldest ever found; access is restricted even to scientists. A spellbound Herzog tells of his lifelong fascination with cave paintings, how he won entry and about his new documentary on condemned men, Death Row.
