AQUARELA at Movies That Matter

AQUARELA takes audiences on a deeply cinematic journey through the transformative beauty and raw power of water. Filmed 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 Angels Falls, water is AQUARELA’s main character, with director Victor Kossakovsky capturing her many personalities in startling visual detail.

In Victor Kossakosvky’s own words:

“…through the natural lens of water you can see, experience and feel the ebb and flow of all known human emotions – anger, aggression, peacefulness, nobility, loneliness, jealousy…everything! …I want to film every possible emotion that can be experienced whilst interacting with water: beautiful emotions along with horrible ones. Ecstasy and inspiration, destruction and human devastation.”

Aquarela at CPH:DOX

Aquarela will be screening in CPH:DOX as part of the Hits branch, with director Victor Kossakovsky and producer Aimara Reques in attendance.

Magnificent work about the fourth element: the world's water masses. Stunning and visually unique - and with a roaring heavy metal soundtrack.

Blocks of ice, bodies of water, fog and snow. The fourth element has many forms, and the Russian master director Viktor Kossakovsky has devoted his new visual artwork to explore them. With monumental motifs - and a roaring heavy metal soundtrack! - his latest film takes us around the world. Water is a fluid metaphor for life itself, but is at the same time a destructive force, which in line with climate change is fighting a violent battle against human dominance on this blue-green planet. 'Aquarela' lets the images speak for themselves and lets us reach our own conclusions along the way. And at a time when much is said about the weather, but very little is done, Kossakovsky's breathtaking vision is a reminder that man, after all, has very little control over the elements. A visually magnificent experience which must be seen (and heard) on the big screen.

Brasilia: Life After Design screening at IberoDocs Festival

Brasilia: Life After Design, a Documentary will be screening in Edinburgh as part of the IberoDocs Film Festival 2019 programme that strives to bring more attention not only to documentary but also to Ibero-American culture.

More information here

Located 2,000 kilometres from the Amazon and 18 hours from Rio, the city of Brasília – the capital of Brazil – is a mythical place: a concrete utopia born out of the desert. In 1956 visionary architect Oscar Niemeyer and urbanist Lúcio Costa invented an urban plan and structures that would attempt to micromanage the daily activity of human life. The goal was to create the space that would birth “the new Brazilian citizen”. Now the stark beauty of the city acts as a backdrop to isolation, changing values, and the dynamic power and politics of today's Brazil. Brasília: Life After Design takes us to a city rarely seen by the international viewer: what is it like to live in someone else’s idea?
