Mick and the Volcano

This is the fifth time Mick Kalber has held a premiere event at the Palace Theatre in Hilo, Hawaii.

A reflection of the fact that for the past 30 years, Kalber has been making documentaries about Kilauea volcano. On Monday-Tuesday April 21st-22nd, he is debuting his latest series entry. And this being Hawaii, each 7 p.m. presentation of VolcanoScapes... Dancing with the Goddess is being preceded by the sacred dancing of Kumu Ehulani Stephany and Halau Hula Ka Makani Hali’ala O Puna.

When Kalber spoke to Hawaii's ABC affiliate KITV, he told reporter Andrew Perreira that the production arc for this latest one had spanned seven years:
"I'm not a religious person, but I'm a spiritual person," Kalber said. "I did a lot of praying on this documentary. I asked for some guidance, I asked for some help... And I got it. It really came together."
Kalber worked as a news photographer in Colorado before deciding he needed to switch to a less hectic lifestyle on the islands. It was love at first-might back in 1984 when he set sight on the world's only two-ends-erupting volcano.
