Cave of Forgotten Dreams
A film by Werner Herzog
GD1132 Greenfield DVD

Film director Werner Herzog was granted a rare opportunity to film the Chauvet Cave in France, which contains some of the oldest works of human art making known to exist. Not only are we able to see the mysterious and haunting images created thousands of years ago, but Herzog introduces us to the people studying the cave, and allows us to the see the methods that they are using to learn about its origins. As always, Herzog brings a unique perspective to the proceedings, one which fits with the profound nature of the subject.
