ABOUT FIRE OF LOVE:
Katia and Maurice Krafft loved two things: each other and volcanoes. For two decades, the daring pair of French volcanologists scoured the planet, hunting eruptions and documenting their findings. Ultimately, they lost their lives in a volcanic explosion in 1991, leaving a legacy that has forever enriched our knowledge of the natural world. Director Sara Dosa and the film crew crafts a lyrical celebration of the intrepid scientists’ spirit of adventure, drawing from the spectacular Krafft archives. FIRE OF LOVE tells a story of primordial creation and destruction, following two daring explorers as they venture into the unknown, all for love.
