Werner Herzog Stipetić ([ˈvɛɐ̯nɐ ˈhɛɐ̯tsoːk ˈstɪpɛtɪt͡ʃ]; born 5 September 1942), known as Werner Herzog, is a German film director, producer, screenwriter, author, actor and opera director.

Herzog is considered one of the greatest figures of the New German Cinema, along with Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Margarethe von Trotta, Volker Schlöndorff, Werner Schröter, and Wim Wenders. Herzog's films often feature heroes with impossible dreams, people with unique talents in obscure fields, or individuals who are in conflict with nature. French filmmaker François Truffaut once called Herzog "the most important film director alive." American film critic Roger Ebert said that Herzog "has never created a single film that is compromised, shameful, made for pragmatic reasons or uninteresting. Even his failures are spectacular."
He was named one of the 100 most influential people on the planet by Time Magazine in 2009.

C'est une grotte immense, protégée du monde depuis 20 000 ans parce que le plafond de son entrée s'est effondré. C'est un sanctuaire incrusté de cristaux et rempli de restes pétrifiés de mammifères géants de la période glaciaire. Pourtant, ce n'est pas le seul trésor que ce lieu unique au monde avait à nous offrir… En 1994, au sud de la France, les scientifiques qui ont découvert la grotte sont tombés, ébahis, face à des centaines de peintures rupestres, des oeuvres d'art spectaculaires réalisées il y a plus de 30 000 ans - presque deux fois plus vieilles que les peintures rupestres les plus anciennes découvertes jusqu'alors. Ces dessins, ces oeuvres, ces témoignages exceptionnels ont été créés à l'époque où les hommes de Neandertal parcouraient encore la terre, en un temps où les ours des cavernes, les mammouths et les lions étaient les espèces dominantes sur notre continent.
