About the Event
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 filmmaking team fashion a lyrical celebration of the intrepid scientists’ spirit of adventure, drawing from the Kraffts’ spectacular archive. Fire of Love tells a story of primordial creation and destruction, following two bold explorers as they venture into the unknown, all for the sake of love.
Join WFTV for a conversation with director Sara Dosa who will be discussing the making of the documentary from idea to screen; offering insight to her creative process and working with archival footage and some of the challenges faced along the way. Chaired by journalist, moderator and film festival consultant Wendy Mitchell.
