As I researched it, to my amazement I discovered there was a far older cave with even more beautiful artwork in it – the Chauvet cave. Being discovered more recently it was less well-known and so I wrote about that instead. Now the film director Werner Herzog has created his first 3D film that focuses on it: Cave of Forgotten Dreams. You can read an Arts Desk review of it here. And here is the trailer:
