The Tournées Film Festival will continue with “Cave of Forgotten Dreams” at 3 p.m. Wednesday, April 13, and “A Sumer’s Tale” at 1 p.m. Friday, April 15, in Billingsly Student Center’s Phelps Theater.
Werner Herzog’s breathtaking documentary “Cave of Forgotten Dreams” gives viewers an unprecedented look at, as he accurately describes it, “one of the great discoveries in the history of human culture”: the prehistoric drawings in the Chauvet- Pont-d’Arc Cave in the south of France. First discovered in 1994, the images—including depictions of lions and mammoths—were made 30,000 years ago and are the earliest known human art.
In “A Summer’s Tale,” Gaspard, a recent math graduate and amateur musician in his early 20s, plans to enjoy three weeks of relaxation before starting a new job. While waiting for Léna, his on-again, off-again girlfriend, to show up, Gaspard becomes amorously entangled with two others: Margot and Solène. When Léna finally does arrive, Gespard finds himself in an impossible situation: He has promised each woman an excursion to a nearby island.
Admission is free, and refreshments will be provided.
