In her tense and gripping new documentary, Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker Rory Kennedy (LAST DAYS IN VIETNAM) tracks the minute-by-minute unfolding of the tragic volcanic eruption off the coast of New Zealand in 2019, when a routine sightseeing day-trip to a remote volcanic island left 47 tourists and guides trapped in the epicenter of a boiling pyroclastic surge of toxic dust and ash. Offering more than a startling and brutal portrait of mother nature’s profound indifference, THE VOLCANO: RESCUE FROM WHAKAARI serves as testimony to humans’ innate generosity by celebrating the survivors and the everyday people who courageously came to their rescue. A Netflix release.
