Review Of Aquarela

If you can take away anything after watching ‘Aquarela’ is the fact that water can be beautiful, terrifying, nurturing, destructive, and untameable. That humans always seem to forget living on planet Earth. We think we can control and manage the elements, but we must be humble when faced with the forces of nature.

In ‘Aquarela’ filmmaker Victor Kossakovsky gives us much to think about as a species. He makes water the focus of the film understanding how to capture this force that is essential to all life. The film is not just about water its also an ode to the ocean, the sky and man’s symbiotic relationship with the elements.

From the Director’s Statement
With AQUARELA, I wanted to film every possible emotion that can be experienced while interacting with water — beautiful emotions, along with unsettling emotions of ecstasy and inspiration, as well as destruction and human devastation.

Looking back, it seems that for my whole life, I have been preparing to make AQUARELA. Almost fifty years ago, when I was just four years old, I spent one summer in a small village between Moscow and St. Petersburg. In that village was the source of a river. A man who lived there, Mikhail Belov, said to me, “Imagine Victor if you made a little boat from wood chip and leaves. Then put it in this river, it would float on the water to the North Sea and then around the world.”
