The Re/Frame Film Series, presented by The University of Tampa’s Department of English and Writing, will continue on Wednesday, Oct. 17, with a screening and discussion of the documentary film, Cave of Forgotten Dreams , which features the Chauvet Cave in Southern France, containing the oldest human-painted images yet discovered. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Reeves Theater on the second floor of the Vaughn Center and is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.

The documentary features filmmaker Werner Herzog alongside a small crew gaining exclusive access to film inside the Chauvet Cave. In order to preserve the art, the public is only allowed to enter the site during a two-week period in the year. Examining the 30,000-year-old drawings, Herzog discusses with scientists and art scholars how the artwork represents humanity's earliest dreams.

The Re/Frame Film series will continue on Monday, Nov. 12, with a screening and discussion of Exit Through the Gift Shop by street artist Banksy. The documentary and crime film tells the story of Thierry Guetta, a French immigrant in Los Angeles, and his passion for street art. The film also charts Guetta’s constant documenting of his every waking moment. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2010, and it was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Reeves Theater.
