The Chilean film company 7 Tierras Producciones is working with German company Dream Team Medienproduktion on a documentary about the eruption of Chaitén volcano in southern Chile. In the course of production – which is ongoing, and they are currently seeking funding to continue production to January 2010 – they have made a very large collection of photographs, some of which Jorge Guzmán of 7 Tierras has been generous enough to share with The Volcanism Blog. These photographs were taken by Cristian Canessa. The aim is to publish many of these images in book form, to be released alongside the film.

Many thanks to Jorge Guzmán and 7 Tierras for letting The Volcanism Blog reproduce these pictures.
