The Great Film:  
The latest in the “VolcanoScapes” documentary series, “Dancing with the Goddess” takes us into a new world of respect, wisdom and awe for one of the most amazing creations anywhere… the birth of the earth! Hawaiian volcanoes fascinate us…halau chant and dance in honor of Pele, the Goddess of Fire and Volcanoes; many others “dance” with the Goddess in a variety of other ways. Photographers, tour guides, artists, scientists, poets and musicians are all influenced by Pele’s magnificent manifestations… and all these interactions can be considered hula.

"Hula is the dance of life and life cycles.”
Hawaiian Cultural Adviser Kekuhi Kealiikanakaoleohaililani

Emmy Award-Winner, Mick Kalber has been documenting the current eruption of Kilauea Volcano since it roared to life in the mid-80s. This two-hour epic will take you behind the scenes of thirty years of Kalber’s amazing volcanography; high fountaining eruptions, the devastation of Kalapana, the ash eruption deep inside Halemaumau crater, littoral explosions, lava flows, tubes, a variety of spectacular ocean entries and much, much more!  It’s the untold beauty of the world’s most active volcano…told through the eyes and voices of those who are most intimate with the Goddess, Pele.
