Cave of Forgotten Dreams - London: Chauvet film & Seminar
Cave of Forgotten Dreams
Institut Francais in South Kensington
Wednesday 18 January 2012
The stunning 32,000 year old artworks of the Chauvet Cave in southern France, discovered in 1994, have an immense implication on our understanding of past human interaction with the world. To protect the integrity of the works, the cave has not been opened to the public.
In 2011 the iconic director Werner Herzog was allowed inside the cave to film this breathtaking subterranean world. The screening of Herzog's film 'The Cave of Forgotten Dreams' will be preceded by a seminar chaired by Dr Didier Bouakaze-Khan, a rock art specialist from University College London, with Professor Jean-Michel Geneste, Scientific director of the Chauvet Cave and curator of the Lascaux Cave, and Julien Monney, PhD student.
