An extraordinary true story

Starring Alex Honnold
Directed by Jimmy Chin & Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi
USA     2018    100 minutes

Free Solo is an edge-of-your seat thriller and a deeply human story of an athlete who challenges both his body and his beliefs on a quest to perform one of the greatest athletic feats of any kind – climbing the 900-metre vertical face of the famed El Capitan rock in Yosemite National Park, alone and without a rope!

This stunning film is an inspiring portrait of professional rock climber Alex Honnold that captures his death-defying climb with masterful, vertigo-inducing camerawork while also exploring the personal toll of excellence.

Free Solo won both the BAFTA and Academy Awards for Best Documentary.

Introduced by rock climber, artist and writer Garry Kennard
