Hadrian Belove of The Cinefamily said it always a dream of his to take moviegoers out of the movie theater. “You know”, he explains, “take a bunch of people fishing while simultaneously screening a movie about fishing”. Thanks to two LA movie organizations, The Cinefamily and Cinespia, dreams can come true. Last Sunday, this dynamic duo teamed up to present Werner Herzog’s new 3D documentary The Cave of Forgotten Dreams in the Hall of Mammals at The Los Angeles Natural History Museum.
In The Cave of Forgotten Dreams acclaimed director Werner Herzog takes his audience into the depths of The Chauvet Cave in southern France. As Herzog explores the cave’s paintings and profound mystery, he explains in his unmistakable voice, that the paintings represent “the beginnings of the modern human soul”. Herzog shot the entire film in 3D, the perfect format for highlighting the undulating walls of the cave and bringing the 30,000+ year old paintings to life.
