"To call this movie fascinating is akin to calling the Grand Canyon large." –The Hollywood Reporter

"Mezmerizing. The images are breathtaking – unlike anything you’ve ever seen before or will again."–

Cave of Forgotten Dreams, a captivating new 3D documentary from Werner Herzog, the visionary director of Grizzly Man, takes us on an unforgettable journey over 30,000 years back in time to explore the earliest known images made by human hands. The Chauvet caves in France contain the rarest of the world’s historical treasures and can only been visited by a handful of researchers. Granted once-in-a-lifetime access and filming in 3D, Herzog captures the beauty of a truly awe-inspiring place, while musing in his inimitable fashion about its original inhabitants, the birth of art, and the curious people surrounding the caves today. (90 mins., 3D high definition video)

Opens Friday, May 6.
