Aquarela

Viktor Kossakovsky

Aquarela takes audiences on a deeply cinematic journey through the transformative beauty and raw power of water. Captured at a rare 96 frames per second, the film is a visceral wake-up call that humans are no match for the sheer force and capricious will of Earth’s most precious element.

"A deeply cinematic journey through the transformative beauty and raw power of water."

From the precarious frozen waters of Russia’s Lake Baikal to Miami in the throes of Hurricane Irma to Venezuela’s mighty Angel Falls, water is Aquarela’s main character, with director Victor Kossakovsky capturing her many personalities in startling cinematic clarity.

Please be advised: a real death is portrayed in the film.
