Directed by Victor Kossakovsky, 89 min., PG

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 her many personalities in startling visual detail. “No one there, or anywhere else in the film, ever utters the words “global warming,” yet the message could not be clearer – we are all of us living on thin ice.” —Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
