From award-winning documentary filmmaker E. Chai Vasarhelyi (“MERU”) and world-renowned photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin comes National Geographic Documentary Film’s FREE SOLO, a stunning, intimate and unflinching portrait of the free soloist climber Alex Honnold, as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream: climbing the face of the world’s most famous rock...the 3,000ft El Capitan in Yosemite National Park…without a rope. "You don't have to be a fan of rock climbing to love Free Solo." Bruce DeMara, Toronto Star "Honnold's whole being is an existential equation. His only means of survival is to remain completely dedicated to each single nanosecond, and his exact place in the universe. He must Be. Or not Be." Katherine Monk, The Ex-Press
