October 21, 2021
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until October 21, 2021
The Rescue is a thrilling documentary that chronicles the against-all-odds story that transfixed the world in 2018.
Directed by Academy Award®-winning directors Jimmy Chin and Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi (Free Solo) and winner of the People’s Choice Documentary Award at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival, The Rescue follows the group of elite cave divers who risked everything to save the lives of a group of 12 boys and their soccer coach after they became trapped deep inside a flooded cave in Northern Thailand. Featuring never-before seen material and exclusive interviews that piece together the high-stakes mission, The Rescue keeps viewers on the edge of their seats and brings alive one of the most perilous and extraordinary rescues in modern times. The film shines 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. Offering powerful messages about teamwork, perseverance, and ingenuity, The Rescue is an inspiring experience full of real-life lessons. [2021, UK/US, 107 min, Rated: PG]
Joe Morgenstern of the Wall Street Journal writes, “Like all good documentaries, The Rescue finds the story beneath the surface of a story we thought we knew.” Thelma Adams of AARP Movies for Grownups says, “This nail-biter is elevated by the notion that sometimes it takes a global village — plus a small circle of amateur experts exceeding their comfort zone — to save lives when natural disasters strike.”
