Fire of Love
"Purely spectacular as it is, Fire of Love is also a riveting film about film: a salute to the power of the Kraffts’ canny, witty images."Financial Times
Straight up our favourite film of the past year, picturesque, and kooky enough to be fascinating, it's a film that documents the rumbling, cinematically marvellous story of two daring French volcanologists, who are not only passionate about magma and the core of the Earth, but also about each other. Accepting the risk of death as part of their passion, they spend their lives together, chasing eruptions all over the world, all in the name of love, beauty, and adventure.
Directed by Sara Dosa and narrated by Miranda July, this lyrical archival collage pulls from hundreds of hours of rare and never-before-seen footage and photographs shot by the Kraffts, channelling the humour, affection, and insatiable curiosity that was integral to their partnership and which left behind a legacy that has forever enriched our understanding of the natural world.

This summer we're thrilled to be partnering again with The Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS), to include a program of extraordinary short films on selected nights of the season. Each AFTRS presentation will be introduced by part of the crew that made that film, giving you an insight into the past, present and future of Australian film. Prior to the screening of Fire Of Love, the AFTRs presentation of Balloon Girl will be shown.
