Free Solo (2018)

February 24, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Dir: Jimmy Chin & Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi 12A, US, Doc

Film start 7:15pm (doors 7pm), running time 100mins

An extraordinary documentary, that was one of the surprise box-office hits of 2018. Chin and Chai Vasarhelyi follow the free-climbing exploits of Alex Honnold—the first person to ever free solo climb El apitan—an infamous sheer mountain climb in Yosemite National Park.

Shot using a dizzying array of camera technologies that fully immerses the viewer in Honnold’s terrifying undertaking, the film also explores Honnold’s own underlying mental health issues. Unlike anything else you are likely to see.

Free, donations welcome.
