Free Advanced Screening Opportunity for AF Hawaii
National Geographic, Sundance Award-Winning Documentary / Story of the Birth of Modern Volcanology – “Fire of Love”
Deadline to register: 19 July 2022
The Alliance Française of Hawaii is pleased to present an advanced screening of Fire of Love, an award-winning documentary on the birth of volcanology, and the story of two French lovers, Katia and Maurice Krafft, who died in a volcanic explosion doing the very thing that brought them together: unraveling the mysteries of our planet, while simultaneously capturing the most explosive volcano imagery ever recorded. Along the way, they changed our understanding of the natural world, and saved tens of thousands of lives. Previously unseen hours of pristine 16-millimeter film and thousands of photographs reveal the birth of modern volcanology through an unlikely lens — the love of its two pioneers.
As both a documentary about volcanoes and a scientists’ romance, ‘Fire of Love’ kicks ash!
Sara Dosa’s Sundance prize-winning film tells the story of French volcanologists Katia and Maurice Krafft using their own extraordinary footage. Read in Los Angeles Times: https://apple.news/A1b4qcgP1SRWAMmwBOGeeqg
