Werner Herzog’s breathtaking documentary—the estimable German director’s first film to be shot in the 3D format—gives viewers an unprecedented look at, as he accurately describes it, “one of the great discoveries in the history of human culture”: the prehistoric drawings in the Chauvet- Pont-d’Arc Cave in the south of France. First discovered in 1994, the images—including depictions of lions and mammoths—were made 30,000 years ago and are the earliest known human art. Herzog and his tiny crew were granted special permission to enter the cave, which remains off-limits to the public, by the French minister of culture; the director’s interviews with Gallic historians scientists, and other experts help provide context for this extraordinary site.
