The Academy Award winner for best documentary feature Free Solo is now available on Hulu.
The movie follows professional rock climber Alex Honnold as he attempts the first free solo ascent of Yosemite’s El Capitan, a 3,200-foot vertical rock face. From filmmaker Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin, Free Solo follows Honnold on his athletic journey as well as the ups and downs of his personal life.
“Free Solo is a true masterpiece that combines awe-inspiring camerawork with the kind of authentic storytelling that Hulu viewers love,” said Lisa Holme, VP of content acquisition at Hulu. “We couldn’t be more excited to partner with our friends at National Geographic Documentary Films to add this extraordinary film to the growing slate of award-winning documentaries available on Hulu.”
