Perfection or death?   The Ultimate challenge

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

This stunning film is an inspiring portrait of professional rock climber Alex Honnold as he attempts to achieve his lifelong dream: climbing the 900-metre vertical face of the famed El Capitan rock in Yosemite National Park – alone and without a rope!

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 – an ascent that demands perfection or death.

Revealing the personal toll of excellence, the directors succeed in capturing beautifully intimate moments with Honnold, as well as the death-defying climb with masterful, vertigo-inducing camerawork.  The film won both the BAFTA and Academy Awards for Best Documentary.

“A miraculous opportunity for the rest of us to experience the human sublime.”    New York Times
