Victor Kossakovsky still cannot believe to have been able to make such a film: difficult shooting condition, exhausting technical problems and dangerous situations his young crew solved stubbornly every time, with the urgency of knowing the unicity of the film they were shooting. Specific shooting choices are explained by Kossakovsky here in this talk at the Venice Film Festival.

Aquarela takes audiences on a deeply cinematic journey through the transformative beauty and raw power of water. Filmed at 96 frames-persecond, 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 visual detail.
