LIFE ON A VOLCANO
Villages on the lava path
For half a million years, the Piton de la Fournaise has been the pulsating heart of the island of La Reunion. A volcano both admired and feared by the people who have come to understand it by living by its side, litterally. Indeed, towns and villages have sprung up on its slopes, right where the lava sometimes makes its way to the sea.
This film tells the daily life of the men and women who have chosen to live around the Piton de la Fournaise, one of the most active volcanoes in the world.
