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.

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 LICHTER FILM FESTIVAL

AQUARELA will be screening at LICHTER FILM FESTIVAL:

Water is the source and basis of all life on earth. In Aquarela, the supposedly silent element itself acts as protagonist. Director Victor Kossakovsky's breathtaking pictures show – using 96 frames per second - the overwhelming power this force of nature is capable of. Ranging from the vehemence of Hurricane Irma in Miami to the frightening beauty of Angel Falls in Venezuela, the potential strength of water mass becomes quite obvious. In the end, human beings are not able to tame it. 

Aquarela is no typical documentary about the wonders of nature, narrated by a gentle off­screen voice. On the contrary: spectacular pictures and stirring music let one positively dive into the water and afterwards leave the cinema with sweaty hands.

With its premiere at the Internationale Filmfestspiele von Venedig, Aquarela's competition at all renowned festivals began. The US ­premiere took place at Sundance Film Festival in the section „New Frontier“. At the 62nd BFI London Film Festival, the screenings and Q&As ensured sold­ out halls.
