While you wait patiently for Banff, consider this fascinating, thrilling and critically acclaimed adventure documentary from filmmaker Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi (Meru) and renowned mountaineer and photographer Jimmy Chin. Filmed over two years and winner of Toronto Film Fest's Audience Award last year, this is a thoughtful, stunning, and inspiring portrait of socially awkward champion climber Alex Honnold who trained for and attempts a 3200 foot free climb, that is without any rope, using nothing but his hands, feet and a little chalk, up the face of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. Either he succeeds or he dies. This is an amazing exploration of a human's physical and mental potential, and the triumph of the human spirit.
