The movie A woman in the middle of the volcano – Uma mulher no meio do vulcão is a homage to Raquel Soeiro de Brito. 64 years after the eruption of the volcano of Capelinhos, she returns to the house where she stayed in residence to study the eruption of the Capelinhos Volcano. During her scientific mission she lived for two months in an uninhabited house. Only equipped with notebooks, pens and cameras. What motivated her at the time and still does nowadays, is to watch the spectacle of Nature and try to understand its mysterious phenomena. “The first impact is that you don’t know anything about anything”. Even at the age of 95, her drive is intact and she returns with the same enthusiasm “It was dangerous, it was brutal and it was beautiful”. An exhibition and the screening of a movie will take place in Capelo.
