From the award-winning team behind FREE SOLO comes THE RESCUE, the People’s Choice award winner for documentary at Toronto Film Festival last week. THE RESCUE tells the extraordinary story of the mission that was undertaken to rescue a young soccer team from a flooded cave in northern Thailand in 2018 that dominated world headlines. It is incredibly gripping and was very well-reviewed out of Telluride and Toronto recently.
THE RESCUE chronicles the enthralling, against-all-odds story that transfixed the world in 2018: the daring rescue of twelve boys and their coach from deep inside a flooded cave in Northern Thailand.
Academy Award®-winning directors and producers Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin (Free Solo), keep viewers on the edge of their seats as they use a wealth of never-before-seen material and exclusive interviews to piece together the high stakes mission, highlighting the efforts of the Royal Thai Navy SEALs and US Special Forces and details the expert cave divers' audacious venture to dive the boys to safety.
THE RESCUE brings alive one of the most perilous and extraordinary rescues in modern times, shining a light on the high-risk world of cave diving, the astounding courage and compassion of the rescuers, and the shared humanity of the international community that united to save the boys.
