× Trail & District Arts Council's MONDAY CINEMA

Fire of Love

at The Royal Theatre, 1597 Bay Avenue, Trail.

Monday, October 24th @ 4 pm

$12/person - No assigned seating. Only 143 seats available.

Fire of Love uses footage filmed by French volcanologists Maurice and Katia Krafft – a married couple, born just a few miles apart in Alsace, who shared an ecstatic love of the beauty and death they found in this natural phenomenon. For two decades, the daring French volcanologist couple roamed the planet, chasing eruptions and documenting their discoveries.

A National Geographic production by Canadian filmmaker Sara Dosa, the film is stunning, featuring a procession of jaw-dropping images from the maw of erupting volcanos, a lyrical celebration of the intrepid scientists’ spirit of adventure. This film is often awe-inducing, but it’s also funny, poignantly capturing the bold explorers who loved two things — each other and volcanoes.

“It’s one of the essential films of the year.” – TIFF

“… more than a mere nature documentary. It is one of the most moving and mesmerizing films of the year, a meditation on the wonders of nature and human curiosity.” - Shirley Li, The Atlantic

“A movie which captures the overlapping unpredictability and ineffable beauty of both volcanoes and human bonds, and the unknown length of fuse which each ultimately possess.” - Brent Simon, AV Club

Director: Sara Dosa / Cast: Miranda July, Katia Krafft, Maurice Krafft / Canada, USA / 1 hr 33 mins / Language: French and English / Genre: Documentary, True Story / Rating: G. Some subtitles.
