The “Cave of Forgotten Dreams” is a spectacular 3D documentary released by Werner Herzog in 2010. The movie transports us into the “Chauvet Cave” (Vallon-Pont-D’Arc, Ardèche, France), a cavity harbouring the oldest paleolithic paintings discovered to date (32.000 BP). On top of the stunning beauty and oustanding conservation of the drawings, the vivid and intertwined nature of the animals depicted on the walls has pushed some archeologist to evoke the possibility of “Proto-Cinema”. In a sense, the genuine manifestation of human storytelling abilities written in stone some 32.000 years ago !
