Free Solo

From award-winning documentary filmmakers Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin (Meru) comes this 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 cliff—the 3,000 ft El Capitan in Yosemite National Park—without a rope. Celebrated as one of the greatest athletic feats of any kind, Honnold’s climb set the ultimate standard: perfection or death. (PG-13, 97 mins)

“A heart-stopping account of an ostensibly impossible endeavor.” – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

“Both intimate and expansive, Free Solo is a documentary beautifully calculated to literally take your breath away. And it does.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
