Here Herzog explores the earliest known visions of mankind: the Chauvet-Pont-d'Arc cave art of southern France, created over thirty thousand years ago. Since their discovery in 1994, access has been extremely restricted due to fears about overexposure. Consequently, Herzog and co are faced with a challenging, low-light shoot with strict limits on timeframe and access. Accompanied by Herzog's distinctive voiceover though, their bobbing torch-beams in fact perfectly illuminate these incredible images - the horses, lions and rhinoceroses almost surge off the cave wall.

There is an additional £2 charge for 3D.
