On Hollowhood, “the best independent film magazine in the UK”, Lava Bombs: Truths Behind The Volcano is a new documentary film about the 2021 Tajogaite volcano, produced by GeoTenerife.
New documentary about the eruption of Tajogaite volcano in September 2021, Lava Bombs: Truths Behind The Volcano, captures the explosive stories behind the crisis and response in La Palma, Spain.
Released in the USA on October 20 on Apple TV, Amazon Prime and Google Play, Lava Bombs shares the power of the disaster through the voices of the people affected by the eruption. As well as spectacular footage of the volcano itself, viewers hear from the emergency managers, scientists and politicians as well as ordinary residents.
With thousands of citizens evacuated from their homes, the pressures of managing a disaster of this scale in the glare of the world’s media is brought into sharp relief.
Founder of GeoTenerife, Sharon Backhouse, led her team to the scene of the volcanic eruption, so they were able to record the events as they occurred, and provide a record of the course of events. Alexander Whittle, the Scottish-based film director Alexander Whittle, was on the scene to witness and record the catastrophe, and provides the narrative by of Lava Bombs with the vision of a ‘big screen’ director. Both the producer and the director of Lava Bombs demonstrate a deep respect for the people effected in the crisis, and created their documentary with sincere hope for the future of the people of La Palma.
Lava Bombs was recentenly previewed in both Tenerife and La Palma, and received a very positive reception.
