The Rescue

THE RESCUE chronicles the enthralling, against-all-odds story that transfixed the world in 2018: the daring rescue of twelve boys and their coach from deep inside a flooded cave in Northern Thailand. Using a wealth of never-before-seen material and exclusive interviews, Oscar-winners E. Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin (FREE SOLO, MERU) keep viewers on the edge of their seats as they bring alive one of the most perilous and extraordinary rescues in modern times, shining a light on the high-risk world of cave diving, the astounding courage and compassion of the rescuers, and the shared humanity of the international community that united to save the boys.

“Easily one of the best documentaries of the year.” (Associated Press)

“An accessible tale of disparate nations and individuals uniting behind a common, noble goal.” (New York Times)

“Chin and Vasarhelyi shape an overwhelming story into something more intimate and to-the-heart devastating.” (Globe and Mail)

“An enthralling documentary, with a real-life story so spectacular you can hardly believe it.” (The Wrap)
