There is a new interview available with Jodi,

Labyrinth: The Soul's Journey

HerzogJodi would like to recommend Werner Herzog's new film  The Cave of Forgotten Dreams

Herzog is an unorthodox visual artist and, through his unprecedented access to Chauvet Cave, he has created a marvelous film that lets the art of these ancient people speak for itself. It is really a wonderful compliment to my book in that he beautifully represents the magical atmosphere of the deep cave and many of the images I discuss. He is clearly enraptured by and deeply appreciative of the sophistication and sense of wonder required to create these images in this strange environment. I appreciate the reverential pace of the camera as it pans over the images to pick out the detail of an eye, a mane, these miracles of art; especially,  his use of light and shadows, fading in and out as the light source changes to demonstrate the inherent motion in the art, the animated qualities of the work. They literally come to life before you. The ethereal music completes the mood. On the other hand, my book provides a deep cultural context for why and how this art was created; why it continues to inspire and move us. He provides a marvelous film component to my text.

You can click on the titles that come up on the screen to focus on one particular section of the cave, find out about the history, the geology, the current theories and much more. This site is especially marvelous because you can see the art in context, within the contours of the cave itself; a completely different experience from seeing them in a flat book.
