Kilauea – The Winter Solstice Eruption

December 22, 2022 · Digital Cinema Projects

After the historic 2018 eruption and summit collapse, Kilauea Volcano remained quiet for over 2 years. On the night of December 20th, 2020, Pele returned home to Halema’uma’u Crater.

The Winter Solstice Eruption allows viewers to immerse themselves in this incredible event from start to finish as it occurred at a time when lava was almost entirely hidden from public view. Along with a powerful and psychedelic soundtrack from veteran music producer John Fryer, the film uses dynamic motion sequences captured through each stage of the eruption. The result is a visceral, moving collage meant to honor one beautiful chapter in Kilauea Volcano’s hyper-active history.
