A small volcanic island sticks out of the Mediterranean Sea; this is the Island of Stromboli. This film follows the personal voyage of filmmaker Micha Shagrir. In 1950, Roberto Rossellini filmed his apocalyptic film here, starring Ingrid Bergman who would become his wife. In that film the volcano takes out its vengeance at the inhabitants of the town ruining their homes and burning their fields. In life, not like in the film, the residents of Stromboli return to the island and rebuild their lives despite the daily danger of another eruption. Shagrir was curious to see how people live in the shadow of a volcano that could erupt at any moment. Does this remind us a bit of our lives here in Israel…?
