I was thinking about a big budget movie ala Troy/ Day After Tomorrow or better still the various HBO-like made-for-tv ones concerning Pompeii, whereby a dramatic backdrop is used to highlight the human triumph and beauty of a people. Movies are a weakness of mine.
There is already a movie made about Krakatoa, called Krakatoa, East of Java
, made in 1969. But obviously the moviemakers never did manage to visit the real volcano itself, or even try to find the volcano in a map in this case, because Krakatau is WEST of Java, not EAST..
There will also be a movie with a love story with the background of Krakatoa eruption, Krakatoa
, to be produced in 2006.. hopefully they'll get the geography right this time..
