Description

The married volcanologists Katia and Maurice Krafft devoted their lives to their shared mission of deciphering the mysteries of volcanoes. For two decades, whenever a volcano erupted, Katia and Maurice wouldn’t be far behind. They documented their global adventures in breathtaking 16mm films and stunning photographs that helped expand the public’s understanding of the natural world. The couple were so committed to their work that they ultimately sacrificed themselves for the greater good when they remained behind to film the 1991 volcano explosion on Japan’s Mount Unzen. Breathing new life into their vast archive of awe-inspiring images, director Sara Dosa chronicles the Kraffts' epic love story in this hypnotic and poetic film. A big-screen experience not to be missed, Fire of Love takes us on a vivid and jaw-dropping journey to the edge of the abyss. (CT) Presented by Fresh Food Design Catering & Events
