MediaOne Studios had a great time helping the Free Solo Movie team share their story of how they made their amazing film. It was an honor to have Alex Honnold in our studio, who was able to scale El Capitan free solo after 20+ years of climbing and 2 intense years of preparation. The directors Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin assembled a world class film crew comprised of an expert climbing team to craft this truly inspiring story of what is considered to be one of the greatest athletic and mental feats of all time. It is a tribute to what is humanly possible. They defied gravity and their film provides the world with a lesson on the power of sheer will and commitment.
Free Solo releases in theaters on October 11, 2018. It is already an award winning film from both the Toronto Film Festival and Mill Valley Film Festival with more awards most likely coming their way. Free Solo currently has a 100% Fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes just before it’s release.
