Friday Night Film Series: FREE SOLO
(dir. Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin, 2018, 100 min)
Executive Producer, Matt Renner ('01), in person!
Produced by the National Geographic, FREE SOLO is a stunning 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 3,000-feet 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. FREE SOLO is both an edge-of-your seat thriller and an inspiring portrait of an athlete whose determination challenges our current understanding of human physical and mental potential.
Co-sponsored by the Outdoor Education Program and the Film Society.
