The Rescue is the edge-of-your-seat account of the rescue of 12 Thai schoolboys and their soccer coach from a flooded cave system in 2018. Created by Oscar winners Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin who brought us the incredible Free Solo film in 2019.
We are delighted that the screening of the film at Kendal will be delivered alongside a unique on-stage interview with three of the UK cave rescuers from the film; Jason Mallinson, Rick Stanton, and Chris Jewell - retelling in their own words, the story of one of the world's most audacious rescues.
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.
