This is the question we are going to be asking as we prepare to make a documentary on residents of Hawaii. What is it like to live amongst an active volcano? Let’s find out.

If you have been following the coverage of the active volcano situation in Hawaii you have probably heard much of the science data behind the eruption.  PaceDocs goal is to humanize the story to show the local culture and emotion behind the devastations of this natural disaster.
