Description

In partnership with AGU, National Geographic is hosting an exclusive screening for AGU attendees at their headquarters. Experience National Geographic Documentary Films’ award-winning feature documentary FREE SOLO a stunning, intimate and unflinching portrait of the free soloist climber Alex Honnold, as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream: climbing the face of the world's most famous rock...the 3,000ft El Capitan in Yosemite National Park...without a rope.


From award-winning documentary filmmaker E. Chai Vasarhelyi ("MERU") and world-renowned photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin, FREE SOLO is both an edge-of-your seat thriller and an inspiring portrait of an athlete who exceeded our current understanding of human physical and mental potential. The result is a triumph of the human spirit.


Following the film,

will host a conversation around the evolution and importance of geological rock formations with a National Geographic Explorer and AGU member as part of AGU's Centennial programming.
