In celebration of New Zealand Archaeology week Otago Museum is screening Finding Altamira for archaeology enthusiasts and history lovers alike!
In 1879, a Spanish archaeologist (played by Antonio Banderas) and his daughter make worldwide news when they find 10 000-year-old cave paintings on their land. However, the discovery puts the family at odds with the religious and scientific leaders of the day. This film follows the true story of Stone Age cave paintings found in the Cave of Altamira, Spain.
