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 the footage for this amazing movie—three decades later! "There are only so many times you can shout 'woah!' at yourself during one film, but this documentary about two French daredevil volcano chasers pushes that number up. Maurice and Katia Krafft spent the 1970s and 1980s married both to each other and to the pursuit of being right there in the heat of the action whenever a volcano turned lethal….This film is about wonder, not balance, and it turns us delirious in the white heat of this pair's chaotic, unflinching passion. Maurice never did realize his dream of taking a canoe down a lava flow, but Sara Dosa's film is something like the cinematic equivalent"—Dave Calhoun, Time Out.

In English and in French with English subtitles.
