“Nyad” had its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival, where it received positive notices for its performances from Annette Bening and Jodie Foster, makeup, film editing, and inspirational telling of an unbelievable true story. The film marks the first time Academy Award-winning filmmaking duo Jimmy Chin & Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi (“Free Solo” and “The Rescue“) have decided to tell a story as a narrative feature rather than a documentary. The two of them were kind enough to spend some time talking with us about their work on the film, which you can listen to below. Please be sure to check out the film, which is now playing in limited release and will be available to stream on Netflix on November 3rd. Thank you, and enjoy!
