Aquarela takes audiences on a deeply cinematic journey through the transformative beauty and raw power of water. 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. Filmed at 96 frames-per-second, the film will be primarily shown in theatres 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 capacity is there, Aquarela will be on the of the first films to be shown at that speed.
