A truly cinematic film, Aquarela is a visually stunning exploration on the absolute power of water.
Presented in the highest fidelity and filmed at an eye-popping 96-frames-per-second, this symphonic documentary traverses the four corners of the globe, dwarfing humanity against gigantic ocean waves, thunderously calving icebergs and glaciers and places the audience as a sailor struggling to stay afloat on a yacht.
This monumental work needs no narration to explain the absolute power of water but is set against a score as pounding as the ocean it so stunningly reflects. One of Aquarela’s great surprises is its sheer scale and unrelenting natural drama which never loses its grip on the viewer.
An utterly compelling big screen experience.
