EYJAFJALLAJÖKULL ERUPTS (Iceland)
This is the story of the eruption in Eyjafjallajökull 2010 and how it affected the farmers at Thorvaldseyri, who live underneath the active volcano. Filming took place during the eruption and the following months.
The people had to evacuate their home 4 times for different reasons and leave 200 animals, mostly cattle; for the first time when the eruption started and it was unknown where the craters had opened up, then due to flooding when the ice started to melt, and twice due to huge amount of ash descending upon them. Then we filmed when people came to help remove the ash and clean the premises and how the people were able to recuperate and built up the farm again.
