Twaalf films, personen, scènes, props, etc. die één ding gemeen hebben: ze hebben iets gemeen.

De Duitse film is tenminste wel leuk
Het is helaas niet zo gegaan als we

Martin calls to say he's sending old electrical equipment. That's good we can always use some more electrical equipment.
Eh, Wim Wenders? Wel Roland Emmerich, niet de regisseur van een van de beste Duitse films aller tijden? Verder prima lijst.

Ik denk dat de auteur van het stuk zelf ook wat kapot was van het pijnlijke verlies... En dan moet alles maar kapot en kom je wel uit bij Emmerich. Zoiets vermoed ik...

The man in the second photo is the film criitc Roger Ebert (www.rogerebert.com). He has been a friend and supporter of Werner Herzog's for many years, so he probably took these photos during an interview with Kinski.

I thought the film was wdnuerfol. It brought to life real people who had lived at a time when seas were 300 lower and people could walk from Germany to Britain. I was rivetted. I have always loved the neolithic and would have liked to have lived at that time. The paintings evoked an era when humans identified as part of the local ecology which included impressive megafauna, some of which were depicted in the cave cave lions, cave bears, wooly rhinos, mastadons. The scientists interpreting the paintings and the times went into the weaponry used for hunting. These neolithic people were tall and amazingly fit and strong to be able to live in the extreme cold and to hunt and live among these huge creatures. The paintings depict the non-humans as real personalities. It makes me sick that Australia is developing all her aboriginal peoples so that they will no longer have a choice of that other lifestyle, which still carries valuable information about a wdnuerfolly healthy way of relating to nature and to each other.I hope I won't offend by saying that race or species in zoology just means a discreet population that breeds within itself for whatever reason. Could be because there is a sea separating that population from others, or other obstacles. Could be different habits, such as nocturnal vs diurnal. But the range of genetic attributes is thus limited so one population might have hairy noses and another might have smooth skin. In Virolution Frank Ryan finds that different populations of animals establish alliances with viral dna and when a member of another population comes into their territory they are likely to succumb to the virus where the local tribe has immunity. Tribes or species are organised according to territory and humans tend to identify themselves with tribal dress etc. Whilst avoiding incest with close family members through exogamy, they still tend to marry within their tribe (endogamy), which has the effect of keeping land within the same families and clans and, incidentally, the range of DNA. A nation of citizens has the same principle; those inhabiting a certain territory are members of a tribe which has rights to self-government. If a population were to avoid breeding out for long enough then you would get such distinct species that there could be no interbreeding, but that is the extreme end of race' or species'. Species means kind' as in different kinds.' The Australian Aborigines are thought to have crossed over Gondwanaland between 60 and 40,000 years ago, more or less direct from Africa. The oldest neolithic art in Cave of Lost Dreams was dated round 34,000 year ago. Until British settlement in Australia the populations there were all still practising neolithic lifestyles and showed no immediate interest in beeds and baubles; they seemed to have too much self-respect and to be self-sufficient without notions of individual wealth.

It may be of interest to some in kninowg that the art seen in this short movie was done by the oldest known people in Europe that today live between France and Spain.. In addition recent findings also include underwater caves that add to the mystery. Oddly, the underwater cave drawings appear to be older than those of land caves.
