Over 36,000 years ago, humans were sparse and lonely in the world. Their tiny communities were lost in an ocean of animal populations. It was an unimaginable isolation that can compare to what we are experiencing right now, confined as we are in our too-narrow living spaces. Then, from the depths of this solitude, imagining their future, experimenting with color, form and sign, they invented art on the rocky walls of the world. The Final Passage is the opportunity of a virtual trip transporting us to that world. May this journey through time and through the origin of art re-enchant a world in danger.

COVID-19 STATEMENT

In the context of this pandemic and of national lockdowns, when Rock Art sites and their replicas are closed to the public, film producer Martin Marquet (above) took the initiative to invite film director Pascal Magontier, Jean-Michel Geneste and the Rock Art Network to join him in making “The Final Passage” a gift to the world, with free and unlimited online viewings.

In the form of an introspective journey through the world of Rock Art, in the heart of the first art that ever existed, this exclusive online release of the “The Final Passage” is a timely event, symbolic of the depth of roots common to all humanity, inherited from immemorial time, 36,000 years ago in glacial Europe.

In the surroundings of the Chauvet Cave, humans had to face hardships and survive in a world they could not control, but in which animals were powerful and overabundant, just as the virus is reminding us today.
