IFC Films: Official Trailer for “Cave of Forgotten Dreams”

Our friends over at IFC Films have sent us the release information for  Werner Herzog’s Cave of Forgotten Dreams. This documentary was shot in actual native 3D, so expect great visuals from the amazing Werner Herzog.  Herzog and his skeleton crew of technicians will journey deep into the Chauvet Cave in France which features drawings from early man believed to be about 30,000 years old.  Judging from the trailer footage you would think that these cave man artisans were early versions of Da Vinci or Rembrandt.  I’m just giddy over the fact that out of all people to get into the 3D mix it was Werner Herzog.  It will be an epic win of enormous proportions!  
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.

    GOTTA SEE IT! I wonder how the strength of distribution will be on this. Hopefully it shows up around these parts. I have a feeling this will be some productive use of 3D. I’m really growing tired of all these self-proclaimed 3D productions whose use of the technology is unimpressive at best.
