Enamored by the humbling experience of witnessing volcanic eruptions, legendary volcanologists and husband-and-wife forces of nature, Katia and Maurice Krafft, were fearless in the face of death. Their shared obsession with volcanoes sparked a lifelong romance with one another and with the ebbs and flows of our planet’s roiling underbelly. The two traveled the world chasing iconic eruptions in the name of science, knowing their unbreakable tether to these unpredictable time bombs would likely be their inevitable demise. Thankfully for the world, Katia and Maurice documented every adventure, capturing never-before-dared footage to learn how to predict the timing and intensity of future eruptions and educate the public on best practices for safe evacuations. Told through the Krafft’s unflinching camera lenses, FIRE OF LOVE drops audiences in stunning view of Zaire’s Mount Nyiragongo, Indonesia’s Krakatau, Washington state’s Mount Saint Helens, Alaska’s Mount Saint Augustine, and Japan’s Mount Unzen—the couple’s final expedition. —A.B.
