Blues for the Glaciers
2015, Documentary, 6 minutes
Location: Rhone Glacier, Swiss Alps.
Musician: George Steinmann Film: Manuel Schüpfer Sound: Markus Fehlmann.

The video “Blues for the Glaciers” by Swiss artist George Steinmann shows the artist playing the blues on a disappearing glacier in the Swiss alps. The film is part of his project “Symbioses of Responsibility,” an artistic research project on climate change, water governance, and transdisciplinary co-operation, commissioned by ARTPORT_making waves for the UN Climate Conference COP21 in Paris. The aim is to broaden the scientific and political debate on climate change with aesthetic and artistic perception.

Aquarela
2019, Documentary, 90 minutes
Director: Victor Kossakovsky

AQUARELA, distributed by Sony Pictures Classics, 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.

Victor Kossakovsky’s AQUARELA poses a thought-provoking question: what would a movie feel like if its main character — its driving emotional heartbeat — was not human at all, but an element of nature?

Spanning the globe, AQUARELA unfolds as a fiercely lyrical, multi-sensorial experience that seeks to break the boundaries between human and nature. The film includes footage captured in seven different countries — Scotland, Mexico, Russia, Greenland, Venezuela, Portugal and the U.S. — plus dramatic, exclusive footage taken cross the Atlantic Ocean. The screen becomes an access point for audiences to give in to pure sensation — seeing, hearing and viscerally feeling the essence of a substance so essential to us that we usually take all its glories — and its incipient threats — for granted. At a time rife with catastrophic images that overwhelm, AQUARELA attempts something entirely different. It invites audiences to come closer, and even closer, so that you might enter nature’s power and experience our own raw fragility in a new way.
