Free Solo (12A)

Free Solo

A stunning and unflinching portrait of the free soloist climber Alex Honnold, as he prepares to climb the face of the world's most famous rock – the 3,000ft El Capitan – without a rope.

A nail-biting documentary from award-winning filmmaker Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and world-renowed photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin

Celebrated as one of the greatest athletic feats of any kind, Honnold's climb set the ultimate standard: perfection or death. Succeeding in this challenge, Honnold enters his story in the annals of human achievement.

Free Solo is an edge-of-your seat thriller, filmed with vertigo-inducing camerawork, that looks into the life and motivation of an athlete determined to push himself to the extreme in his quest to achieve the perfect climb.
