Fire of love
Sara Dosa • USA • 2022 • 93 min
The life story of volcanologists Katia and Maurice Krafft, from the early days of their romance and studies, to their untimely and tragic death while on location pursuing their research into volcanoes.
Composed entirely of archival footage, Fire of Love is an uplifting film that is buoyed even higher by the charming personalities on-screen: Katia and Maurice are infectious in both their love for each other, for adventure and the subject of their lifelong research. Besides a bittersweet love story fuelled by the natural world itself, there’s an important narrative thread that speaks to Katia and Maurice’s struggle to save lives by pushing local governments to increase volcano monitoring services and not just pursue their own research further.
