One of the best Imax-films
6 August 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The eruption of Mount St. Helens. Sunday May 18th, 1980.

Years before during and and after the eruption the surroundings (up to 30 miles)are filmed. Breathtaking views of the eruption. With the neighbor away, set the output level higher then normal, en find yourself in the middle of one of natures greatest powers! One of America's greatest nature-disasters.

An out-of-earth landscape is formed, but within ten years already a livable place.

Filmed by rescue-helicopters. This film was nominated for an Oscar in the category Best Short Documentairs.

My favorite Imax-film.
