FREE SOLO (12A) – 2018 USA 100 mins

Directors: Jimmy Chin, Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi
Features: Alex Honnold, Tommy Caldwell, Jimmy Chin

Alex Honnold prefers to climb free solo: alone, without ropes. The mortality rate of elite free solo climbers is huge, but Honnold is driven by a desire to achieve the near-impossible, culminating in an attempt to ascend the sheer rock face of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park, despite the fears of his partner and friends. At once a heartstopping adventure documentary and a detailed character study, Free Solo examines a man who very literally lives on the edge.

The programme will include our current BRIT School Showcase film How to Disappear Completely (12A) by Nancy-Belle Hannah.
