“Alex Honnold’s free solo climb should be celebrated as one of the great athletic feats of any kind, ever.” – The New York Times
To celebrate International Mountain Day on 11 December, join us for a live event of Free Solo followed by a Q&A session with Alex Honnold and directors Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin.
From award-winning documentary filmmaker E. Chai Vasarhelyi and world-renowned photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin, the directors of Meru, comes Free Solo, a stunning, intimate and unflinching portrait of free soloist climber Alex Honnold, as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream: climbing the face of the world’s most famous rock… the 3,200-foot 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. Succeeding in this challenge places his story in the annals of human achievement.
The screening and Q&A will be broadcast live across the UK and Ireland via satellite.
