Film Columbia 2018 is over, but the Crandell Theatre in Chatham continues it’s year-round offerings of new releases. Here’s what’s playing now.
From award-winning documentary filmmaker E. Chai Vasarhelyi (Meru), world-renowned photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin, and our own Oscar-nominated editor Bob Eisenhardt, comes National Geographic Documentary Film’s Free Solo, a stunning, intimate and unflinching portrait of the free soloist climber Alex Honnold, as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream: climbing the face of the world’s most famous rock, the 3,000 foot El Capitan in Yosemite National Park, without a rope. Celebrated as one of the greatest athletic feats of any kind, Honnold’s climb set the ultimate standard: perfection or death. Succeeding in this challenge, Honnold enters his story in the annals of human achievement. Free Solo is both an edge-of-your seat thriller and an inspiring portrait of an athlete who exceeded our current understanding of human physical and mental potential. The result is a triumph of the human spirit. – Peter Biskind
