A famous eruption of Kilauea Volcano, Hawai’i, started in 1959 with spectacular fountains of lava and ended in 1960 with the tragic destruction of the village of Kapoho. This movie (part 1 of 2) tells the story of the eruption through eyewitness accounts and archival film footage, and examines the scientific and social lessons that still affect Hawai’i today. This film was selected for display in the Science Storytelling Workshop and AGU Cinema at the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting in December 2013.
