An edge-of-your seat thriller and an inspiring portrait of an athlete who challenges both his body and his beliefs on a quest to triumph over the impossible.

WINNER: PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD, TORONTO AND AMSTERDAM DOCUMENTARY FILM FESTIVALS 2018

The 3,000-foot vertical rock face of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park is the setting for “one of the greatest athletic feats of any kind, ever”. This gripping and cinematic documentary follows elite climber Alex Honnold’s attempts to free climb (without ropes) this iconic rock. Honnold’s battle with El Capitan, his physical limitations and inner resolve are captured every step of the way by award-winning filmmaker Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and renowned photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin. Vertigo-inducing and truly dazzling, this documentary transcends its subject matter to become something both intimate and universal. 

A heart-stopping account of an ostensibly impossible endeavour.The Wall Street Journal
