Film Independent Presents: Aquarela
August 8, 2019 • 7:30 pm PDT
Free Members-Only Screening: Aquarela
Aquarela takes audiences on a deeply cinematic journey through the transformative beauty and raw power of water. Captured 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 Angel Falls, water is Aquarela’s main character, with director Victor Kossakovsky capturing her many personalities in startling cinematic clarity. The film, which opens on August 16, will be shown in theaters at 48 frames-per-second – double the typical 24 frames-per-second – as projectors with the ability to project at 96-frames-per-second are extremely rare today. But, when the time comes that the capability is there, Aquarela will be one of the first films to be shown at that speed.
2019, 90 minutes, color, DCP | A film by Viktor Kossakovsky
