Aquarela takes audiences on a deeply cinematic journey through the transformative beauty and raw power of water. 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 Russian director Victor Kossakovsky capturing her many personalities in startling cinematic clarity. Filmed in such diverse locations as Greenland, Venezuela, Siberia’s Lake Baikal and the middle of the Atlantic. (PG, 89 mins)

“A purely sensationalistic cinematic experience that paradoxically encourages reflection and contemplation.” – Glenn Kenny,

“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
