In her latest documentary, THE VOLCANO: RESCUE FROM WHAAKARI, Rory Kennedy (ETHEL, LAST DAYS IN VIETNAM) takes a close examination of the 1999 Whakaari / White Island volcanic eruption in New Zealand in which 22 lives were lost. Using footage from survivors and undertaking interviews with those who were there, the film viscerally recounts a day when ordinary people were called upon to do extraordinary things, placing this tragic event within the larger context of nature, resilience, and the power of our shared humanity. THE VOLCANO: RESCUE FROM WHAAKARI is a moving story of survival and loss.
