In the documentary "Cave of Forgotten Dreams," filmmaker Werner Herzog finds some natural, and man-made wonders, deep in the Chauvet Cave in southern France, a perfectly preserved underground space where artwork dating 30,000 years has been discovered.

"Cave of Forgotten Dreams" is this month’s Science Movie Night presentation, sponsored by the Natural History Museum of Utah, the Utah Film Center, and the Salt Lake City Library.
