Free Solo (2018)
From award-winning documentary filmmaker E. Chai Vasarhelyi and world-renowned photographer, and mountaineer, Jimmy Chin comes National Geographic’s documentary film Free Solo.
Free Solo is a stunning, intimate and unflinching portrait of the free soloist climber Alex Honnold, as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream: climbing the face of the world’s most famous rock…the 3,000ft El Capitan in Yosemite National Park…without one single rope.
Celebrated as one of the greatest athletic feats of any kind, Honnold’s climb set the ultimate standard; perfection or death.
Free Solo is both an edge-of-your seat thriller and an inspiring portrait of an athlete who exceeded our current understanding of human physical and mental potential. The result is a triumph of the human spirit.
