Rex Cinema: Fire of Love

Purbeck Film Festival

 

Fire of Love: Husband and wife volcanologists Katia and Maurice Krafft were at the top of their field throughout the 70s and 80s, pioneering the use of cameras to record spectacular volcanic eruptions throughout the globe. This sensitive documentary chronicles their love for the lava flow, rivalled only for their love for each other, and their tragic end as a result of an unexpected eruption. It has some of the most eye popping volcanic images ever recorded and is ultimately a film about powerful natural forces: the seismic fury of an active volcano, the compelling bond between lovers and the pressure cooker of a dangerous obsession.
This endlessly rewatchable film is to be introduced by Prof. Matthew Bennett from Bournemouth University who is an expert on volcanic hazards. This is a perfect opportunity to question a leading authority on the tragic circumstances of the film and any issues and aspects you might have concerning this dramatic and essential component of our fragile globe
