Art and our Paleolithic ancestors in Cave of Forgotten Dreams at Robinson Film Center

"The Chauvet-Pont-d'Arc Cave is a cave in southern France that contains the earliest known cave paintings, as well as other evidence of Upper Paleolithic life," says Wikipedia. "It is located on a limestone cliff above the former bed of the Ard├Ęche River. Discovered in 1994, it is considered one of the most significant prehistoric art sites."

Eminent filmmaker Werner Herzog has won a 96% rating at rottentomatoes.com for his new documentary on the Ice Age cave. It is in 3-d and is being shown at RFC.

It is not screening in 3-D at The Robinson Film Center, they have a non-3-D print to screen from. Most art houses were unable to project it in 3-D.
