Some 35,000 years ago, mysterious artists journeyed into a
huge, crystal encrusted limestone cave in what is now the south of
France where they painted hundreds of pictures of animals. From today's
perspective, they not only created works of art but seem to have created
art itself. These artists continued to produce their unique works for
over 10,000 years until the collapse of a rock face sealed the cave off
from humanity, thus preserving the paintings in near pristine condition
for hundreds of generations.
In 1994, a group of scientists re-discovered the Chauvet Cave, and
the French government, knowing the cultural significance the cave holds,
immediately cut-off all access to it, save for a few archaeologists and
Now, acclaimed director Werner Herzog has been given unprecedented
access to bring his audience inside the Chauvet Cave to enjoy the
sublime works in all their splendor, a sight previously seen only by a
handful of select scientists.
