Since 2003, a volunteer team of volcano lovers is helping scientists of the Volcanological Observatory of Goma and UNOPS, an UN antenna to natural hazards in the DRC, to learn more about this African giant.
Seasoned with the difficult terrain, they will help volcanologists to descend into the huge crater to collect samples, gather data and installing surveillance equipment.
The film of Olivier Grunewald recounts, in 52 minutes, the adventure of these enthusiasts for over 10 years, to the foot of the largest lava lake on the planet.
The film will be broadcast on Ushuaia TV and TV5 Monde, the dates are not yet fixed.
