Director SARA DOSA (US/Canada 2022) 93 min
Featuring a stunning array of gorgeous and often otherworldly archival footage, Fire of Love follows the fascinating career of two pioneers in the field of volcanology, the delightful French scientists, Katia and Maurice Krafft. In the 70s and 80s, the Kraffts—who were in love with volcanoes as much as they were with each other (or even more so)—traveled the globe in pursuit of the latest volcanic activity, learning as much as they could by getting frightfully close to the eruptions and lava flows. While their scientific achievements are important and led to a better understanding of volcanoes, what made the couple a public phenomenon was their boundless enthusiasm for volcanoes expressed on numerous talk shows and in their own films. In Sara Dosa’s wonderful film, the “fire of love” still burns brightly.
