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.
