Fire of Love
Fire of Love is an unexpected love story of two intrepid French scientists, Katia & Maurice Krafft, who died in a volcanic explosion doing the very thing that brought them together: seeking to understand the mystery of volcanoes by capturing the most spectacular imagery ever recorded. The two shot hundreds of hours of footage and thousands of photographs, risking their lives to get as close to the thrill of the fire as humanly possible. Fire of Love playfully interprets the Kraffts’ story and images they left behind, resulting in a collaged archival adventure through themes of love, time, the implacable unknown and the meaning of human existence amid the vastness of our planet's most awesome force.
