TITLE: Kilauea [videorecording] : mountain of fire.
PUBLISHED: Chicago : MMIX Questor, Inc
DESCRIPTION: 1 videodisc (110 min.) : sd., col. ; 1/2 in.
NOTES: Kilauea continually molds Hawaii's Big Island. Creating new land, shaping ancient forests and carving tunnels through the earth, the volcano fascinates a dedicated group of scientists and filmmakers who follow its every action. Ejecting fire, molten rock, giant boulders and poisonous gasses, the volcano can be a hazard for researchers, homeowners, plants and animals, but it doesn't just leave destructions in its wake. Twists and turns in the lava's flow leave some patches of original ecosystems, called kipukas, undisturbed. These oases of life provide a haven to many rare creatures - including the Hawaiian state bird, the Nene but remain in constant danger from the volcanoes and from invasive species. At the end of the journey, the lava meets the ocean. Braving an extremely hot sea, filmmakers record the birth of new land. Violent and beautiful, destructive and creative, Kilauea: Mountain of fire explores the incredible power of the volcano and the challenges of life in its shadow.
