This special event features a taped introduction and Q&A with the filmmaker.
Fire of Love had its World Premiere at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival. Katia and Maurice Krafft loved two things — each other and volcanoes. For two decades, the daring French volcanologist couple roamed the planet, chasing eruptions and documenting their discoveries. Ultimately, they lost their lives in a 1991 volcanic explosion, leaving a legacy that forever enriched our knowledge of the natural world.
Director Sara Dosa and the filmmaking team fashion a lyrical celebration of the intrepid scientists’ spirit of adventure, drawing from the Kraffts’ spectacular archive. Fire of Love (2022) tells a story of primordial creation and destruction, following two bold explorers as they venture into the unknown, all for the sake of love.
