Directors On Developing ‘The Rescue’ Under Significant Constraints And Why They Had To See The Project Through

FW Interview 'The Rescue' 10.8.21

You may recall the dramatic rescue mission that took place in northern Thailand in 2018 after 12 junior soccer players and their young coach went missing. Rescuers found the group and ultimately all were safely brought out of the cave system but under daunting circumstances. The new documentary “The Rescue” chronicles the story. KPCC’s John Horn sat down with Directors Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin ahead of the film’s premiere at the Telluride Film Festival. The duo also directed the 2018 Oscar-winning film “Free Solo.” “The Rescue” is available to see in theaters now. It’s rated PG.
