Werner Herzog's Cave of Forgotten Dreams features the oldest known art in the world—Paleolithic-era paintings in France's Chauvet Cave. His documentary not only reveals the cave's wonders, but offers a subtle commentary on 3D and its relationship to cinematic space, spectacle, science, art, and older media techniques and forms.
