Originally shot and nominated for an Oscar as best documentary short in 1980, this film was remastered in large screen format and released to IMAX Omnidome theaters in an expanded version which includes more scenes shot in 1990 showing the aftermath of the eruption of Mount St. Helens ten years after the fact.

I'm surprised that the film won a short-documentary Oscar - it's so light on facts that it could have been a photo-essay - or maybe that's what it was. Lots of really lovely views of the mountain and the ashfalls and the devastation, but no real explanation of why it happened, how far it affected things, what the end results were. I like my documentaries to have facts, which is why I voted this one low.
