Cave of Forgotten Dreams

Exempt / 90mins / Werner Herzog / 2010 / Canada | USA | France | Germany | UK, some subtitles

Herzog captures the stunning majesty of the Chauvet Cave in southern France, where the world’s oldest cave paintings have been discovered. Herzog reveals a breathtaking subterranean world including 32,000-year-old artworks. With his humorous and engaging narration Herzog reflects on our primal desire to communicate and represent the world around us, and ultimately upon what it means to be human.

** Notice about The Cinematologists appearance **

Unfortunately, one of the film academics Dr Dario Llinares, who was due to be speaking at this screening, will no longer be able to attend, as he has suffered a serious injury in a recent cycling accident.

Filmmaker and Electric Palace cinema director Rebecca E Marshall will offer a short introduction and Q&A instead for this screening.

We look forward to welcoming Dario back after his recovery, for the next podcasting recording sessions on 12th February and 12th March 2017.
