15. Cave of Forgotten Dreams (2010)
Werner Herzog’s “Cave of Forgotten Dreams” is the story of humanity’s oldest surviving pieces of artwork located in the Chauvet caves of Southern France. We learn the stories and historical perspective behind the oldest cave paintings, estimated at 32,000 years old. The caves’ walls depict vivid impressions of their surroundings—and maybe their imaginations.
Despite having only a three-person crew that filmed the whole thing because of the restrictions of the French law, Herzog creates a fascinating and intimidating look at the artwork of the beginning of modern humans. Films like this remind you that there is a whole world of beauty and mystery to explore.
