National Geographic: Forces of Nature

National Geographic: Forces of Nature

Director: George Casey Cast: Kevin Bacon



Kevin Bacon narrates this documentary (produced by the National Geographic Society) which examines the elemental power of earthquakes, tornadoes, and volcanoes. Combining striking archive footage with computer-created reenactments and interviews explaining just what causes these natural forces to lose control, the film's sequence on volcanoes is centered on the massive Soufriere Hills eruption of 1995, while an tremor in Izmit, Turkey, which cost the lives of 17,000 sets the stage for a segment on earthquakes, and Dr. Joshua Wurman leads a group of "storm chasers" as the filmmakers investigate tornadoes. Forces of Nature was shot and initially exhibited in the high-definition IMAX film format.
