Cave of Forgotten Dreams

Bangor Public Library

Join us for a screening of the documentary movie Cave of Forgotten Dreams and discussion afterward.

Cave of Forgotten Dreams, a documentary from the incomparable Werner Herzog (Encounters at the End of the World, Grizzly Man) follows an exclusive expedition into the nearly inaccessible Chauvet Cave in France, home to the most ancient visual art known to have been created by man. Cave of Forgotten Dreams is an unforgettable cinematic experience that provides a unique glimpse of pristine artwork dating back to human hands over 30,000 years ago — almost twice as old as any previous discovery.

This event is in partnership with the Bangor Public Library and a primer for their April 2017 Smithsonian Exhibition – Exploring Human Origins.
