The French couple Katia and Maurice Krafft lived and died for a deeper understanding of the mysteries of volcanoes, both the red ones (flowing lava) and the gray ones (explosive volcanoes). They documented the life-threatening beauty of volcanoes, and inspired researchers in volcanology and geohazards, including Olivier Galland, who is a researcher and expert on volcanoes.

Now 30 years after their tragic deaths, director Sara Dosa, CA/USA has created a documentary about their important work. The film had the premiere at the Sundance festival in 2022. The film shows spectacular footage taken by the couple of lava in all the forms erupting lava can take.

The film was presented at the Oslo Pix Filmfestival.
