Details

'Aquarela takes a deep dive into watery realms around the world, offering up an experience that can truly be described as immersive.' - Hollywood Reporter review by Leslie Felperin [https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/review/aquarela-review-1138896]

'At heart, Aquarela is a war film: a cacophonous survey of the global battle between man and water.' - Slant review by Keith Watson [https://www.slantmagazine.com/film/review-aquarela-viscerally-attests-to-mother-natures-fight-for-survival/]

Aquarela takes audiences on a deeply cinematic journey through the transformative beauty and raw power of water. Filmed at a rare 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 Angels Falls, water is Aquarela's main character, with director Victor Kossakovsky capturing its many personalities in startling visual detail. Screening with short film Surface (Dir. John Rodosky, USA, 7 min) which follows award-winning photographer Ben Thouard as he works to capture a new perspective of the underwater world.

Part of Cinema Versa, LIFF 2019’s selection dedicated to documentary, non-fiction and music film.
