Aquarela is a deeply cinematic journey through the transformative beauty and raw power of water. From the precarious frozen waters of Russia’s Lake Baikal to the throes of Hurricane Irma in Miami to Venezuela’s mighty Angel Falls, water is Aquarela’s main character. Director Viktor Kossakovsky captures the element’s many personalities in startling cinematic clarity at 96 frames per second.
A true experience in the movie theater, Kossakovsky's use of stunning imagery and sounds creates powerful moments of nature. Cars trapped under ice. Icebergs falling. Waterfalls towering above the clouds. An ocean rejecting its borders. Aquarela evokes complex emotions: the visceral images show the intensity of the many worlds of water, but the film is also incredibly beautiful. Alongside all this are the strange ways humans try to cope—with dire results captured on camera. This film is a warning.
