THE RESCUE

2021 (USA) 114 minutes

In the summer of 2018, the world stood watch as twelve young soccer teammates were trapped in a cave in northern Thailand. Flooded passageways left rescue crews at a loss, until they sought help from cave experts and deep-sea divers who offered both an expansive knowledge of the risks involved and the willpower to succeed when all hope seemed lost. Oscar winning directors Jimmy Chin and E. Chai Vasarhelyi (Free Solo) take on one of the most remarkable rescue missions in recent history with intricate detail; the powerful firsthand accounts in The Rescue will leave you in awe of human perseverance.
