Cave of Forgotten Dreams

Event Details

Park and Tilford

Cave of Forgotten Dreams brings the Chauvet-Pont-d’Arc cave art of southern France to vivid life. Sealed shut by a landslide for 20,000 years until discovered in 1994, the Chauvet Cave in southern France contains some of the oldest known examples of prehistoric art. This invalu­able site had only been open to a select group of scientists, until legendary director Wer­ner Herzog obtained permission to film these ancient artworks. The result is a quiet and captivating documen­tary that not only raises questions about history and art, but the nature of creation and the eternal struggle of mankind to understand.
