Jimmy Chin & Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi were hot off of their Best Documentary Oscar win for “Free Solo” when the real-life story of “The Rescue” occurred. Using archival footage from the daring 2018 mission, new interviews, and thrilling reenactments using the actual cave divers involved in the rescue, Jimmy and Elizabeth have once again created one of the most intense and inspirational documentaries of the year. The two of them were kind enough to spend a few minutes talking with us about the film, which is now playing in theaters from National Geographic Documentary Films. Take a listen down below and enjoy!
