This year, the world’s oldest mountain film festival features highly anticipated debuts from across Europe and Italy.
The best in mountain cinema will be on show at the TrentoFilmfestival 2011. This year features a host of newly released international films, starting with Cave of Forgotten Dreams, the first 3D documentary by German director Werner Herzog; after its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival and its European premiere in Berlin, the film will be screened for the first time in Italy on Saturday 30 April. The film was mainly shot in the Chauvet cave in France, which is off limits to all but a few experts. In his first extraordinary 3D film, Herzog unveils the world’s oldest drawings, which are believed to be more than 30,000 years old. These sophisticated, modern-looking works of cave art still amaze experts even today, and Herzog’s words and music transform them into yet another groundbreaking piece of filmmaking.
