Stevie Smith Burns Down a Volcano
When the volcano on Miyake-jima erupted in the year 2000, the entire population of the island was evacuated and forced to live off-island for four-and-a-half years until 2005.
Canadian downhill racer Stevie Smith was fortunate enough to visit the island and was granted permission to explore the volcano by bike. This is a record of the first successful filming of the peak approved by Miyake Village since the eruption in 2000.
POV footage gives a great idea of Stevie’s pace.
