Fire of Love
Katia and Maurice Krafft lived and died for a deeper understanding of the mysteries of volcanoes.
Surrounded by the beauty and dangers of volcanoes, Katia and Maurice Krafft found love. 30 years after their tragic death, we finally get to witness the spectacular footage and the undying love of the two charming volcanologists. Miranda July's narration provides poetic observations reminiscent of Werner Herzog: «Alone they can only dream of volcanoes; together, they can reach them».
Fire of Love shows humans facing love and the spectacular powers of nature. Katia and Maurice wanted to share their knowledge with the world, and we get to see some of their TV-appearances. Though their eventful lives were cut short, they still live through their spectacular footage. Now we get to join them on their adventures.
