Krakatoa, in the Sunda Strait in Indonesia, has attracted a significant literature and media response to the 1883 eruption.




  • Krakatoa, a short (26 min) 1933 teaching film about the volcano that won the Academy Award for Best Short Subject, Novelty for its producer Joe Rock. This movie was notable for overwhelming the sound systems of the cinemas of the time. In Australia, the distributors insisted on a power output of 10 watts RMS as a minimum for cinemas wishing to show the movie. This was then considered a large system, and forced many cinemas to upgrade. A revised version was made in 1966 for the Library of Congress.

There are several recent videos of Krakatoa uploaded onto YouTube showing the inside of its crater[1] and it erupting.[2]
