AQUARELA takes audiences on a deeply cinematic journey through the transformative beauty and raw power of water.

Captured at 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 Angel Falls, water is AQUARELA’s main character, with director Victor Kossakovsky capturing her many personalities in startling cinematic clarity.


"Kossakovsky and Ben Bernhard assemble a stunning, occasionally numbing sensory symphony." Jeannette Catsoulis. A New York Times Critic's Pick!
