Cave of Forgotten Dreams

by Werner Herzog Special Screenings

In the winter of 1994, the oldest surviving cave paintings were found in the Chauvet Cave in southern France. Few people have since had access to the cave. Filmmaker Werner Herzog was one of the few allowed to enter this amazing space. Herzog’s unmistakable commentary underlines the magic he has captured on his 3D camera in this awe-inspiring location, as he philosophises about the cave’s former inhabitants and the creation of art.
