“This is a firsthand look at volcanoes - perhaps the most dazzling but destructive natural force on earth”

Volcanologist Maurice Krafft believed that “…people are much more curious about hell than about paradise”. Krafft and his wife Katia certainly were: the French scientists shared a lifelong fascination with volcanoes that took them all over the world to film eruptions until a hot ash flow in Japan claimed their lives in 1991.

In this National Geographic Special, made two years before their death, the Kraffts’ breathtaking films and photographs allow us to share this fascination from the safe distance of our living rooms.
Among the more memorable scenes is a bleak black volcanic landscape punctuated by the lava’s red fireworks and by the Kraffts in their silver asbestos suits, looking more like astronauts on some distant planet than scientists glimpsing the fire of the Earth’s core.

The pair’s enthusiasm for their work is evident in their film footage and spills over into the video’s interview segments, making Volcano a fitting, if unintentional, tribute to the Kraffts and to the volcanoes to which they dedicated their lives.

Synopsis:
Travel around the world for a firsthand look at volcanoes - perhaps the most dazzling but destructive natural force on earth. Massive volcanic eruption can turn day into night, releasing the power of an atomic blast, spewing toxic avalanches of lava, gas, and ash. National Geographic Video transports you to some of the world’s most notorious volcanoes, including Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines and Japan’s Mount Unzen.
Join volcanologists in their dangerous quest to forecast eruptions and save lives, putting you in the middle of the explosive excitement and human drama of Volcano: Nature’s Inferno.
