Nova: Kilauea - Hawai'i on Fire

 

  Nova: Kilauea - Hawai'i on Fire

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 4/10/19

I don't normally watch much on TV or DVD that's not fiction. However, PBS sent me some videos to watch, so I'm reviewing them. This was probably the least exciting of the ones they sent to me because it deals with recent history, which is not as interesting.

This episode was all about the volcano that erupted on the big island of Hawaii in 2018. You probably saw or read news footage of this.

They attempt to understand how this happened and why. There's a lot of great video. If you didn't live through it, you might find it very exciting.

I thought it was just okay. It's only an hour but seems much longer. There are no features or extras on this DVD.

KILAUEA: HAWAI'I ON FIRE

In May 2018 the Kilauea volcano erupted, obliterating neighborhoods with devastating force and uprooting thousands of local residents. It is Hawaii’s most destructive volcanic eruption in generations. How can one of the most beautiful places on Earth suddenly transform into a roaring inferno, sputtering molten lava and bombs of volcanic rock the size of refrigerators? On the ground in the early days of the eruption, NOVA joins scientists and residents alike on a breathtaking journey to investigate Kilauea’s recent spike in activity. Along the way, some of Hawaii’s biggest secrets are revealed: Why did these geologically distinctive volcanoes form in the middle of the Pacific? How did life establish itself on the remote islands? What does this tell us about the future of Hawaii? And what dangers lurk for the inhabitants of the island paradise?
