About the film:
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.
“intrigue, danger, and adventure… Dosa’s “Fire of Love” doesn’t just celebrate them as volcanologists, or devoted lovers, but as extraordinary visual storytellers.”
—Nick Allen for Roger Ebert
