Succeeding in this challenge, Honnold enters his story in the annals of human achievement.
Co-directed with Jimmy Chin, the film offers an intimate, unflinching portrait of rock climber Alex Honnold, as he prepares for and then achieves his lifelong dream: to climb the face of the world's most famous rock.
Founded in 2017 by Laurene Powell Jobs and Davis Guggenheim, the company develops, produces and finances nonfiction stories about important issues of our time.
Alex does many trial runs to grasp and master the most difficult parts of the climb.
There are simply no words for it.
While the movie does well putting everything into the proper context, in particular Alex's budding relationship with his new girlfriend, what makes this so remarkable is that we, the audience at large whom I suspect are not experts in rock climbing, let alone free solo climbing are shown how technical and challenging it is to climb up El Capitan, let alone doing it free solo.
