Director: Victor Kossakovsky

UK/Denmark/Germany, 89, PG-13

Screenwriter: Kossakovsky and Aimara Reques.


The most dramatic movie of the year may be the one with no actors, an improvised script, and no written dialogue. Victor Kossakovsky’s new film on the incredible beauty and power of water is also a wake-up call to its necessity to anything we recognize as life on earth. Kossakovsky uses specially designed camera-stabilizing equipment in treacherous conditions to capture images that have never been seen before on the screen. The result is a mind-blowing trip from Siberia’s Lake Baikal to the glaciers of Greenland, from the stormy wilds of the Atlantic Ocean, to the magnificent rainbows of Venezuela’s Angel Falls. With the evocative music of Finnish composer Eicca Toppinen, Aquarela is a cinematic experience best seen on Cinestudio’s giant single screen! 
Aquaréla will be shown at 48 frames-per-second, double the typical 24 frames-per-second.
“A visual tour-de-force. The shadow of climate change lurks just under the surface of the beautiful, unsettling film.” Michael O’Sullivan, Washington Post.
