‘Free Solo’ is 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 3,200ft El Capitan in Yosemite National Park… without a rope or safety gear. The film will feature a recorded Q&A with climber Alex Honnold.
