Aquarela

89% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes

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. 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.

The film will be shown in theaters at 48 frames-per-second, double the typical 24 frames-per-second, as projectors with the ability to project at 96-frames-per-second are extremely rare today, but when the time comes that the capacity is there, Aquarela will be one of the first films to be shown at that speed.

"A purely sensationalistic cinematic experience that paradoxically encourages reflection and contemplation."

Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com

"Eco-documentary on H20 in the age of climate change - from crumbling icebergs to chaotic hurricanes - is both gorgeous and terrifying. The shape of water, indeed."

Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"Kossakovsky's cinematic globe-trotting documentary dazzles us with doom."

Brad Wheeler, Globe and Mail
