Cave of Forgotten Dreams is a documentary about the Chauvet Cave in France, which contain man-made art dating back 20, 000 years. The cave was sealed by a landslide thousands of years ago, until it was recently uncovered. This helped preserve the art drawn on the cave walls, which amazingly depicts the movement of ancient animals. Although many animal skulls and bones were found scattered throughout the cave, no human bones were found. This supports the idea that the cave may have been used for animal sacrifices in religious-type ceremonies. Man may not have wanted to be trapped inside such a cave, but preferred roaming in open land. The stalactites and stalagmites are particularly striking. The cave is only open for short periods of time, and a metal "sidewalk" has been constructed to preserve and protect the soil.

This is a very interesting documentary with amazing photography. Man's ability to produce such art may change our impressions of early humanoids. We may have to rethink how long man has existed on earth. This is well worth your time.
