“Kilauea – The Fire Within” is a short film by Lance Page that examines the grace, mystery and risk of Kilauea, which is an active shield volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii. Director Lance Page explains:
“I wanted to just see the volcano doing what it does by turning the cameras away from human interaction and toward the fiery blood of the Earth. The Fire Within is our attempt at capturing what it felt like to witness molten rock slowly burning down a dense wet rainforest, or to peer into a 600 foot wide lava lake at Kilauea’s summit crater.
I’ve never been anywhere else on the planet that demanded as much respect and awareness for the natural environment around me. Pele’s (Hawaiian for lava) mesmerizing beauty and unsettling sense of danger were nothing short of humbling and put so much into perspective. Kilauea really did change my life.”
