Evening Presentation:

Madame Pele’s most recent period of high activity has affected people across Hawai‘i Island, in many cases with devastating effects.on lives and well-being.  While we do not lose sight of these effects, and we do what we can to help our ‘ohana, the fact remains—and perhaps it’s a bit uncomfortable to recognize—that the 2018 eruption of Kīlauea has produced some of the most visually beautiful images of our planet in a transition both destructive and creative. 

One of Hawai‘i’s leading photographer/videographers has put together a breathtaking presentation, a mix of both photos and videos highlighting the Kīlauea fissure eruption from Day One.  Andrew Hara shares his personal experiences throughout the eruptive events; how his visual media were able to help families, communities, and government agencies; and the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to record 27,000 detailed photographs of a most significant geological event in Hawai‘i Island’s history.  Share this on either of two occasions:  Monday evening, November 12, or the following afternoon, November 13.
