Red Zones is a sensory exploration of geological and human fragility. Borrowing from the science documentary tradition and the ethnographic film genre, the filmmakers produce a survey of the natural and social environments that surround the active volcanoes of the Neapolitan area. As we edge closer to Vesuvius and the Phlegraean Fields, a neighbouring caldera whose activity is revealed to be even more unpredictable and insidious than the superstar Volcano, one cannot help but wonder how people can live on the surface crust of a magma bubble ready to burst. This documentary explores that fundamental question, yet refuses to provide its viewers with one definitive answer, privileging a portrayal of life around these craters that acknowledges the inherent complexities of the human condition.
