Ablaze is a film about beauty and destruction. In nature, they are two sides of the same coin. Yin and yang. Light and dark. Fire and ice. No other place in the world exemplifies this more than Iceland. Volcanos, lava, rain, ice, cold, wind, floods, tectonic activity, and crashing waves are some of the elements that created the Island's breathtaking landscapes.
Ablaze was filmed in Iceland during the 2014 Autumn Equinox, shortly after the volcanic eruption in Bardurbunga started. Like a blaze burning in the night sky, the light of the volcano added an orange-red glow to the Vatnajokull glacier while northern lights danced above.
Music is the song "Recoil, Ignite" by Mono - monoofjapan.com
From their new album, Rays of Darkness
