Ep 6: Free Solo and humans in extremis
In this episode, we discuss the Oscar-shortlisted documentary Free Solo, which documents free soloist Alex Honnold's preparation for and ascent of Yosemite's El Capitain without ropes. We know that Honnold survived because Contributing Editor Gillie Collins interviewed him for Seventh Row. In the episode, we discuss how the film depicts Honnold's process and complex psychology, the film's similarities to space movies like First Man and The Right Stuff, and why stories of humans in extremis...

Though the film is flawed, it's often very intelligent and worthy of thoughtful discussion, which is why we've dedicated an episode to it. Three Seventh Row editors — Editor-in-Chief Alex Heeney (@bwestcineaste), Associate Editor Orla Smith (@orlamango), and...
