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 film making team fashion a lyrical celebration of the intrepid scientists’ spirit of adventure, drawing from the Kraffts’ spectacular archive. Fire of Love tells a story or primordial creation and destruction, following two bold explorers as they venture into the unknown, all for the sake of love.

A story of love and discovery told with curiosity and care, Dosa honours her unique subjects lending tenderness and poetry to the archive footage. – Ella Kemp, Empire Magazine 

At times it’s difficult to decide if these two are courageous or foolhardy, but even so, Fire of Love is a remarkable story. Most importantly, it highlights the bravery of those who help us understand the power of the natural world.  – James Luxford, City AM
