Created by a team led by the multi-talented director/writer/cinematographer/editor Victor Kossakovsky, AQUARELA is a visual and aural tour de force that puts you face to face with the overwhelmingly raw power of water in all its forms. Aside from a dramatic opening sequence, the human form is largely absent from this cinematic journey to locations, including a frozen Lake Baikal in Siberia, the deserted streets of Miami during the thundering Hurricane Irma, and the gloriously majestic Angel Falls in Venezuela.
To say the film is experiential is a radical understatement; it manages to redefine the cinema-going experience itself. Without relying on special effects as a crutch, Kossakovsky conveys a cinematic vision every bit as powerful as the tumultuous natural forces he is depicting. –Ken Jacobson
