‘AILA’AU: Forest Eater is a short film that takes viewers on a journey through the infamous 2018 eruption of Kilauea’s lower east rift zone on the Big Island of Hawaii. The film uses select footage from Lance Page, Michael Lienau and G. Brad Lewis with a very special shot by Adrian Hein and blends together a rich visual feast. Featuring Sam Cossman in full lava suit at lava rivers edge, testing out C-THRU from Qwake Technologies.

As the visuals dazzle, the original music and sound design helmed by Stefan Scott Nelson and Kevin Dippold create a dark dreamy melody that nicely accents the incredible, beautiful and bizarre wonder of nature. The otherworldly sound mix is accompanied by Stephanie Dosen’s powerful vocals blended with a handful of other choice musical contributions.

Rather than use a more literal documentary style of storytelling, the film keeps a visceral, sensory driven approach as in the style of Page’s previous two Kilauea films. This eruption became the focus of a third chapter of the Kilauea eruption trilogy by Page Films that began in 2014 and ended strong with an epic finale of a 35 year long Hawaiian eruption.
