Cave of Forgotten Dreams

From the incomparable Werner Herzog ("Encounters at the End of the World", "Grizzly Man"), "Cave Of Forgotten Dreams" provides a breathtaking cinematic experience following an exclusive expedition into the Chauvet Cave in France, home to the most ancient pictorial art ever discovered. The film provides a unique view of nearly inaccessible, pristine works dating back over 30,000 years - almost twice as old as any other known to exist. Herzog evokes wonder and curiosity in equal measure as he explores the very beginning of human culture.
