Cave of the forgotten dreams

The Chauvet Cave in South France was discovered in 1994 and is the home to the oldest rock paintings and earliest known human foot prints in world. This is the first time a filmmaker has had the chance to film inside the limestone cave and interview the archeologists, art historians and other scientists and academics who have been studying the cave. The movie is in 3 D and narrated by the director, Werner Herzog. On screen is always fascinating although it does meander from time to time.
