The Volcano: Rescue from Whakaari

In late 2019, the Whakaari volcano off the coast of New Zealand erupted, leaving dozens of tourists scrambling to get off the island to safety. This documentary recounts the dramatic story, using original cell phone footage and first-hand accounts of survivors and rescuers. Intense, worth your time.
