From award-winning documentary filmmaker E. Chai Vasarhelyi and world-renowned photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin comes National Geographic’s Documentary Film: Free Solo.
According to American reviewers, Rotten Tomatoes, the five-star rated documentary is a stunning, intimate and unflinching portrait of the free soloist climber Alex Honnold, as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream to climb, without ropes or aids, the 3,000ft El Capitan in Yosemite National Park
Celebrated as one of the greatest athletic feats of any kind, Honnold’s climb sets the ultimate standard: perfection or death. Succeeding in this challenge, Honnold enters his story into the annals of human achievement.
Free Sole, which won the 2019 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature, 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.
