About the event

Intrepid scientists and lovers Katia and Maurice Krafft died in a volcanic explosion doing the very thing that brought them together: unraveling the mysteries of volcanoes by capturing the most explosive imagery ever recorded.

'But there’s never anything saccharine in this love story, with Dosa and co keeping a firm grasp on the Kraffts’ ambition and intelligence. There will always be some gaps left to fill — moments where both the archives and the filmmakers’ imagination can’t quite put all the pieces of the jigsaw together. Still, the Kraffts warned so many around the world of the dangers of volcanoes, avoiding major natural disasters and teaching us how to better care for the planet so it can, in some way, love us back. At one point Maurice says he hopes that by living far away from humans up in the clouds and mountains that he’ll learn to appreciate us a little better. In Fire Of Love, a beautiful distillation of two peoples’ determined lives and loves, we are taught to understand the relationship between the world and ourselves: how love can sometimes be the most potent thing worth remembering.

A story of love and discovery told with curiosity and care, Dosa honours her unique subjects — lending tenderness and poetry to the archive footage.' - Empire Online.

This event will be raising funds for the Bendigo and District Environment Council. Come at 6:30pm for drinks and a chance to hear about their latest campaign.
