Aquarela

18/07/2014: In Production: Aquarela

Pictured (Clockwise): Victor Kossakovsky, Joslyn Barnes, and Heino Deckert with Aconite’s Aimara Reques.

Aconite’s Aimara Reques is currently hard at work developing one of the company’s current projects: Aquarela.

Directed by Victor Kossakovsky, Aquarela takes us on an epic journey, at the heart of which is the majestic element: water. Filming from an iceberg as it ruptures from a polar ice sheet and traverses the open sea, we experience the beauty of this essential life-giving element as well as its shattering power.

The project is developing well. We are currently in the funding stage and have been meeting with distributors, sale agencies and potential financiers in the US, and aim to have the financing in place by the end of 2014.

Aquarela is a co-production with ma.ja.deLouverture Films and Danish Documentary Production and the project is being developed thanks to Creative Scotland; Tribeca Film Institute and Eurimages.


Sheffield Doc:Fest

08/06/2014: On pink carpet at Sheffield Doc/Fest

The pink carpets were out last night to launch the 21st edition of Sheffield Doc/Fest.

 

The screening of PULP – the opening film of the Fest – was a celebration of the noble people of Sheffield and in that sense it was a great pleasure for Aconite to be there.

 

Sheffield Doc/Fest is the biggest documentary event in the UK and we have a busy week of pitching meetings, watching great films and continuing to expand our network of like-minded documentary lovers.

 

We wish Sheffield Doc/Fest a happy 21st Anniversary and hope that the Festival continues to grow and expand as it has done over the past years.

 

We love Doc/Fest and their generous team.
