Episode InformationAloha! Welcome to paradise on earth. The islands of Hawaii and their breathtaking nature are idyllic: stunning beaches beckon you to snorkel, perfect waves draw surfers from all over the world, and spectacular landscapes entice you to indulge yourself. These "islands of happiness" at the end of the world owe their existence to a hot spot in the center of the Pacific. Here the earth's crust is extremely thin, allowing volcanoes to form on the seabed and vent their lava into the sea. What is the story behind this island world in the South Seas? And how capable is this paradise of surviving? Some time ago, a renaissance started in Hawaii. Many residents disagree with the somewhat clichéd image of the paradise they call home. They want a return to tradition and authentic Hawaiian culture. The multi-part series "Hawaii: Born of Fire" invites viewers on a journey beyond the clichés of Hawaiian culture. To the spirit of the islands, to the essence of life, expressed in tradition, craftsmanship and ancient arts. The films portray the settlers and their descendants who have found their home in paradise.
