by Victor Kossakovsky Special Screenings

From the frozen waters of Lake Baikal to the clutches of Hurricane Irma in Miami and the impressive Salto Ángel waterfall in Venezuela: master documentary filmmaker Victor Kossakovsky’s most recent work, AQUARELA, is a breath-taking journey around the world of ever-changing beauty and an ode to the sublimity of water. Filmed at a speed of 96 frames per second, the film is a visceral and fundamental cinematographic experience: a film that is meant to be felt rather than just seen, it offers a declaration of love to the life-giving element and the happiness it can evoke. Simultaneously, the film is also a reminder of the destructive power of water, to which we humans are completely at the mercy of, particularly in these times of climate change.
