Late Night Film: Cave of Forgotten Dreams

Friday, October 18, 9:00 p.m.

In this Werner Herzog documentary, the director and a two-person crew examine some of mankind's earliest cave paintings in southern France's Chauvet Cave, which is normally closed off to public view for preservation. The film gives an unprecedented and breathtaking view of 30,000-year-old paintings that capture early man's first recording of the world around them.
