Hawaii – The Pace of Formation | a short film

The most beautiful islands of Hawaii and the lava flowing creating new land. The closeness of a seemingly destructive part of nature turning into the extension of the islands through the hardening of the lava. Amazing visually. Awe striking. – j.kiley

Hawaii – The Pace of Formation

“Hawaii – The Pace of Formation” is a window into the creation of an island. The Kilauea Volcano’s continued flow of lava into the ocean is one of the few places in the world to provide a front row seat of an island’s formation. The Big Island is literally changing before your eyes. This vast island contains 8 out of 13 different climate zones in the world, each with unique ecosystems, making the Big Island one of the most ecologically diverse places in the world. To showcase its diversity, we wanted to slow things down and let its beauty speak for itself. Enjoy!
