“A daredevil with a samurai’s intensity, Alex Honnold scales a vertiginous cliff without ropes in this visually staggering documentary.” **** Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
This visually staggering documentary from National Geographic is about the climber Alex Honnold, who specialises in the most mind-boggling and gasp-inducing “free solo” climbs in this case of El Capitan, the 3,000ft-high rock formation in Yosemite Valley, California. We see his difficult relationship with his girlfriend Sanni McCandless. Like all those close to Honnold, she is in the purest form of agony as Honnold makes his almost supernaturally difficult climb.
Winner of the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature at this year's academy awards, FREE SOLO 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.
This event is screened in Oscars and spaces are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
