A Glowing Cloud


A Glowing Cloud is one in a series of three short documentaries examining the different natural elements released by eruputing volcanoes.

These films capture the real-life stories and experiences of disaster survivors; with the objective of analysing risk and educating communities that live in the shadows of active volcanoes.
A Glowing Cloud focuses on the incredible danger and impact of pyroclastic flows, and the destruction they can cause.

Filmed across the volcanoes Tungurahua in Ecuador, Soufrière Hills in Montserrat and Nevado del Ruiz in Colombia.

You can watch the accompanying films, A River of Rock & An Eclipse here.
