From the directors of Free Solo, The Rescue chronicles the dramatic 2018 rescue of 12 Thai boys and their football coach, trapped deep inside a flooded cave. E Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin reveal the perilous world of cave diving, the bravery of the rescuers, and the dedication of an entire community that made great sacrifices to save these young boys.

An outing to explore a system of caves after football practice turned into a two-week saga of survival and a story that would capture the world’s attention. With exclusive access and never-before-seen footage from the rescue, the film tells the story of the imagination, determination and unprecedented teamwork displayed during this heroic edge-of-your-seat mission with life-or-death stakes.

This preview screening will be followed by a recorded Q&A with filmmakers E Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin, and cave divers John Volanthen and Rick Stanton, hosted by Ben Stiller.
