From award-winning documentary filmmaker E. Chai Vasarhelyi and world-renowned photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin, the directors of Meru, comes Free Solo, a stunning, intimate and unflinching portrait of free soloist climber Alex Honnold, as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream: climbing the face of the worlds most famous rock … the 3,200-foot El Capitan in Yosemite National Park … without a rope.
Celebrated as one of the greatest athletic feats of any kind, Honnolds climb set the ultimate standard: perfection or death. Succeeding in this challenge places his story in the annals of human achievement.
Decembers preview screening will be accompanied by a satellite Q&A with climber Alex Honnold.
‘An extraordinary gift to everyone who believes that the limit of human achievement is far from being reached.’
THE NEW YORK TIMES
