A Behind-The-Scenes Look at The Insanity It Took To Shoot FREE SOLO
The documentary Free Solo was one of my favorite movies of 2018. It’s a must watch for anyone who wants to see someone accomplish one of the greatest human athletic achievements in history.
The film follows the insane journey of Alex Honnold’s dream of climbing Yosemite’s famous El Capitan, a 3,000-foot vertical rock face… without any ropes or gear.
Today we have a behind-the-scenes video where directors Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin talk about the insanity and madness that they had to commit to pull off this incredible feat. Everything about the making of this film was dangerous and after knowing what they had to go through to make it, I’m surprised that no one got hurt or killed.
I’m still in awe over this film and what was accomplished in the making of it.
