From National Geographic Documentary Films comes “Fire of Love”: the extraordinary love story of intrepid French scientists Katia and Maurice Krafft, who died as explosively as they lived – capturing the most spectacular footage ever recorded of their greatest passion: volcanoes.
The Sedona International Film Festival presents the northern Arizona premiere of the extraordinary and breathtaking documentary “Fire of Love” from July 29 to August 29. 4 at the Mary D. Fisher Theater.
From National Geographic Documentary Films comes the extraordinary love story of intrepid French scientists Katia and Maurice Krafft, who died as explosively as they lived – capturing the most spectacular footage ever recorded of their greatest passion: volcanoes.
Katia and Maurice Krafft loved two things: each other and volcanoes. For two decades, the daring pair of French volcanologists scoured the planet, hunting eruptions and documenting their findings. Ultimately, they lost their lives in a volcanic explosion in 1991, leaving a legacy that has forever enriched our knowledge of the natural world.
Director Sara Dosa and the film crew craft a lyrical celebration of the intrepid scientists’ spirit of adventure, drawing from the Krafft’s spectacular archive.
“Fire of Love” tells a story of primordial creation and destruction, following two daring explorers as they venture into the unknown, all for love.
Sessions will take place at 7 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Tuesday, July 29, 30 and August 2; and 4 p.m. on Sunday and Thursday, July 31 and August 4.
