Written by Danielle Chiriguayo and Amy Ta, produced by Sarah Sweeney

“The Rescue” is a new documentary about the international effort to save a young boys’ soccer team and their coach who were stranded inside a Thailand cave during a monsoon in summer 2018. Experts flew into Thailand from the U.S., U.K., Laos, China, Australia, and Belgium. Many of them risked their lives to save 13 strangers.

“The Rescue” is co-directed and produced by E. Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin, who won an Academy Award for “Free Solo,” which showed Alex Honnold’s record-breaking rope-less climb of Yosemite’s El Capitan.
