Free Solo won the Oscar in the Best Documentary category at the Oscars 2019. This fascinating documentary follows the extreme climber Alex Honnold with spectacular images. This man knows no fear and climbs mountains without security.
The documentary gives an intimate glimpse into the life of free climber Alex Honnold who has one dream: to climb the world famous El Captain in Yosemite National Park. Nine hundred seventy-five meters high, without a rope.
Documentary maker E. Chai Vasarhelyi and photographer Jimmy Chin have succeeded in capturing the most dangerous sporting performance ever in a way that makes you feel the solitary height and vulnerability of Alex during his climb. Not only has the climb been a physical and mental achievement, but the filmmakers have also had to move the necessary mountains to make this film.
