[edit] Information

Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are the subject of Born of Fire, the main thesis of which is that our world is constantly changing. Our earth was once a single continent, yet today the separated continents seem stationary; they are, however, moving an inch or so each year. By studying our earth's history, scientists predict that Africa will collide with southern Europe, Eastern Africa will be isolated, Los Angeles will move toward Alaska, and New York will become part of a volcanic range. Narrator Robert Ballard takes viewers to Iceland (where in 1963 an island emerged off Iceland's coast), the United States (to the site of San Francisco's 1906 earthquake and Los Angeles's 1857 and 1971 earthquakes), Greece (to the island of Santorini's misfortune during the Bronze Age), East Africa, and Japan, where children are schooled in reading, writing, and catastrophe (their earthquake in 1923 killed 140,000 people). The irony is that though scientists can make increasingly more accurate geological predictions, we cannot know whether we will survive the disasters caused by the unstoppable shifting of the earth's huge plates. While 1997's Volcano: Nature's Inferno offers more compelling footage, Born of Fire is still a fascinating and cohesive look at these phenomenal geological occurrences. --Cristina Del Sesto
