Most people only dream of the chance to be in the same room as legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog, but Saturday night, all of L.A. was welcome to enjoy such a treat. Thanks to Cinespia and Cinefamily, Angelenos were invited out to the Museum of Natural History for the premiere event of Herzog's 3-D documentary Cave of Forgotten Dreams.
The director himself was there to present his newest project which explores the Chauvet caves of France that hold the oldest human wall paintings in the world. In addition to the screening with Herzog, the night also featured a lineup of live performances from bands like Islands and White Magic, DJ sets Dntel and David Holmes, and the requisite food trucks on hand for snacking. Set against the backdrop of the museum, with guests surrounded by dinosaur skeletons and dioramas of ancient landscapes, plus Herzog casually mingling with the crowd, it was certainly one of those surreal, uniquely L.A. experiences.
