ISLANDS OF FIRE

Isole di fuoco

Directed by Vittorio De Seta
Italy, 1955
Short, Documentary

Synopsis

The first light of dawn. The sound of a boat and the screech of birds fill the wide expanse of sea. Black rocks emerge from the water, the “sciara” – the volcanic scoria – of Stromboli, the underwater sulfurous emanations, the layers of reddish rock eroded by the sea.
