FIRE OF LOVE
Katia and Maurice Krafft were the superstars of volcanology. The married couple and research team visited volcanoes across the globe. Their findings made a significant contribution to our contemporary understanding of the earth’s core. After their tragic death, they left behind some spectacular film material that tells of fiery abysses but also of life and love. Pablo Bücheler
