FIRE OF LOVE
$11 General Admission & $8 OFS members
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. Narrated by Miranda July.

“It’s ethereal, elliptical in its construction and eerily beautiful” – David Fear, Rolling Stone
“This has to be one of the most heartwarming movies about scientists ever made, especially as it always honors the red-hot nature in their shared passion.” – Nick Allen, RogerEbert.com
