Reviews

‘A story of love and discovery told with curiosity and care, Dosa honours her unique subjects — lending tenderness and poetry to the archive footage.’
★★★★
Ella Kemp, Empire Magazine

‘The way this lyrical documentary, operating in the intersection between science and poetry, tells it, the danger of the eruptions was part of the attraction.’
★★★★
Wendy Ide, The Observer
