What could be more romantic for Valentine's week than a free screening of the 2023 Oscar-nominated documentary about love and lava?!

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. French volcanologists Katia and Maurice Krafft died as explosively as they lived — chasing eruptions and capturing hundreds of hours of footage, leaving a legacy that forever enriched our knowledge of the natural world.

The Kraffts 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.
