Katia was a geochemist and Maurice a geologist. Etna and Stromboli were their paragons. Together they shared a passionate life; a volcanic and playful love story experienced to the limit. In the 1970s they embarked on a joint quest that would last two decades and which took them all over the world to study the eruption of volcanoes. Zaire, Hawaii, Indonesia, the United States, Japan... Maurice filmed in 16mm and Katia took photos of the craters on foot. Such images had never been seen before. Filmmaker Sara Dosa has constructed a memorable adventure from 200 hours of unpublished archive footage and Katia and Maurice's personal notes and writings. Artist Miranda July gives voice to the fascinating universe of these two unclassifiable volcanologists. The exceptional archive material unveils an epic love story between two explorers who devoted their lives to the pioneering study of volcanoes.

"A beautiful collage in which romance, scientific research and death unfold a 93-minute dance".

— Daniel Fienberg, The Hollywood Reporter

"The most spectacular recordings of volcanoes ever filmed give strength to this documentary about two volcanologists (...) It's emotional and amazing."

— Owen Gleiberman, Variety

"A well-thought-out documentary that balances playfulness with a dark side (...) ' Fire of Love' gets a final touch of existentialism that makes it endure over time".

— oshua Rothkopf, Entertainment Weekly

"Sara Dosa has made this documentary with modesty and sensitivity".

— Tim Grierson: Screendaily
