Dir: Jimmy Chin, E. Chai Vasarhelyi | USA | 2018 | 100 mins
From award-winning filmmaker E. Chai Vasarhelyi and world-renowned photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin comes this heart-racing portrait of climber Alex Honnold as he prepares to achieve the unprecedented: climbing the face of Yosemite National Park’s 3,200-foot El Capitan without a rope.
One of the greatest and most terrifying athletic feats imaginable, the climb’s exacting standard is perfection or death; but while Honnold is training he is also falling in love – threatening his focus, and immeasurably raising the stakes. Capturing Honnold’s death-defying climb with vertigo-inducing camerawork alongside more human and intimate moments, Free Solo is a stunning and unforgettable documentary.
