Beautiful documentary about water directed by Victor Kossakovsky (Vivan las antipodas!), forcefully splashing off the screen. The loud background music contributes to creating a true cinematographic experience. This tribute to water intends to raise awareness and show people that we should not take nature for granted.


Kossakovsky takes us on a true cinematographic journey to discover water in all its aspects. We go on a boat trip to experience our insignificance when rocked back and forth by huge waves. We witness the violent force of tsunamis, see the prematurely melted ice floes of the Baikal Lake in Russia, and behold the power and overwhelming beauty of the Angels Falls in Venezuela. A special film about the numerous appearances of water. The Filmkrant called Aquarela an ‘eco-documentary  with frame rates that make your eyes pop out of their sockets and decibels that make your eardrums tremble’.
