Katia and Maurice Krafft loved two things – each other and volcanoes. For two decades, the daring French volcanologist couple were seduced by the thrill and danger of this elemental love triangle. They roamed the planet, chasing eruptions and their aftermath, documenting their discoveries in stunning photographs and breath-taking film to share with an increasingly curious public in media appearances and lecture tours. Ultimately, Katia and Maurice would lose their lives during a 1991 volcanic explosion on Japan’s Mount Unzen.

This National Geographic documentary, a big hit at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, shows the legacy of this courageous couple. More than twenty-five years of Katia and Maurice's archival footage is woven into a truly spectacular and instructive film. The incomparable images speak of their love for each other and for volcanoes, but above all of the fragile relationship between man and our planet. More than topical these days.
