Hidden from public view, a war is raging inside the diamond industry. When filmmaker Jason Kohn infiltrates this highly secretive world, he uncovers a vast, far reaching crime that threatens the value of every diamond ever mined. At stake is nothing less than the universal symbol of love and commitment—the engagement ring. Featuring some of the most colorful and powerful industry insiders, NOTHING LASTS FOREVER launches us deep inside a criminal investigation and forces us to reconsider the creation of value itself.

Followed by director Jason Kohn in conversation with Artistic Director David Nugent.

FIRE OF LOVE tells the story of two French lovers, Katia and Maurice Krafft, who died in a volcanic explosion doing the very thing that brought them together: unraveling the mysteries of our planet, while simultaneously capturing the most explosive volcano imagery ever recorded. Along the way, they changed our understanding of the natural world, and saved tens of thousands of lives. Previously unseen hours of pristine 16-millimeter film and thousands of photographs reveal the birth of modern volcanology through an unlikely lens—the love of its two pioneers.
