Victor Kossakovsky has the chance to dissect his latest work, Aquarela, for the pleasure of our cinefile audience. A production that proved to be as beautiful as it was dangerous to shoot, Aquarela is a work that combines technology with an old-fashioned, romanticist take on filmmaking.

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.
