Fresh from its world premiere at Venice Film Festival, renowned filmmaker Victor Kossakovsky’s Aquarela takes audiences on a deeply cinematic journey into the transformative beauty and raw power of water. Filmed at a rare 96-frames-per-second, Aquarela is a visceral wake-up call to the fact that humans are no match for the sheer force and capricious will of Earth’s most precious element. 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 the main character in Aquarela, as Kossakovsky captures its many personalities in startling visual detail.
