About this event

From award-winning filmmaker E. Chai Vasarhelyi and world-renowned photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin comes this heart-racing portrait of climber Alex Honnold as he prepares to achieve the unprecedented: climbing the face of the 3,200-foot El Capitan in Yosemite National Park without a rope.

To celebrate International Mountain Day on 11 December, join us for a live event of Free Solo followed by Q&A with Alex Honnold and directors Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi & Jimmy Chin. The screening and Q&A will be broadcast live across the UK and Ireland via satellite.
It’s scary and exhilarating stuff.”
Glenn Kenny,

One of the greatest and most terrifying athletic feats imaginable, the climb’s exacting standard is perfection or death. But while Honnold is training, he falls in love; threatening his focus and immeasurably raising the stakes. Capturing Honnold’s death-defying climbing with masterful, vertigo-inducing camerawork – alongside deeply human and intimate moments – this is a stunning and unforgettable documentary.
