The film is part of the festival’s monthly series featuring the best arthouse, foreign, documentary and independent films. Screenings are held on the first Wednesday of the month.

Free Solo tells the incredible story of Alex Honnold. While his friends and loved ones try to dissuade him, the world’s most accomplished free soloist climber prepares mentally and physically for his most daring adventure to date: scaling the 3200-foot El Capitan in California’s Yosemite National Park without a rope or safety gear.

If he succeeds, it will mark the largest wall that he – or anyone else – has ascended without any equipment.

While plotting his ascent, awkward loner Honnold must also navigate life with his new girlfriend, who has moved in with him.

Featuring breathtaking camera work, Free Solo is an edge-of-your-seat thriller as well as a stunning, intimate and unflinching portrait of an incredible athlete who is determined to push the limits of human achievement.

In addition to winning the 2019 Academy Award®, the film also won the Best Documentary prize at the British Academy of Film and Television Awards [BAFTAs], the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival as well as 18 other awards. The film is rated PG-13 [United States].
