Master Drawings

Werner Herzog's Cave of Forgotten Dreams

Werner Herzog‘s 2010 film, Cave of Forgotten Dreams,  shows masterful cave drawings done by ancestors 25,000 to 32,000 years ago. The drawings were found in 1994 in Chauvet Cave in the south of France. Herzog is our film guide, but towards the end of the story he allows us some time alone to simply observe those beautiful drawings.  The film is in 3-D, which is perfect for viewing the uneven surfaces of the cave wall.
