Mobile Kino Presents:
(English with German Subtitles)
From award-winning documentary filmmaker E. Chai Vasarhelyi and world-renowned photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin comes Free Solo, a stunning, intimate, and unflinching portrait of 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-foot El Capitan in Yosemite National Park—without a rope. Alex’s June 2017 climb is celebrated as one of the greatest athletic feats of any kind.
Free Solo is an edge-of-your-seat thriller and an inspiring portrait of an athlete who challenges both his body and his mind on a quest to triumph over the impossible. As Alex starts training, he begins to fall in love, threatening his focus and giving way to injury and setbacks. Chai and Jimmy succeed in beautifully capturing deeply human moments with Alex as well as the death-defying climb with exquisite artistry and masterful, vertigo-inducing camerawork.
