An ordinary stroll after soccer practice in 2018 became a two-week survival adventure and a story that caught the attention around the world. They were locked up in a cave two kilometers deep, and there was a lot of anticipation. Next came the challenge of how to free them. This was immediate, obvious, and perplexing.
All About The Rescue
The Rescue is an emotional and gripping account of one the most extraordinary and daring rescues in history. The film shows us inside the cave and highlights the efforts of the Royal Thai Navy Seals and US Special Forces. It also recounts the brave expedition of cave divers to rescue the boys. There are unique interviews and unreleased footage.
As it shows the dangers of cave diving and the heroic rescuers who show incredible compassion and heroism, audiences are on the edge. Vasarhelyi, Chin and their rescue team record an incredible feat of physical strength. They reveal the details of what seemed impossible in a similar fashion to their documentaries Free Solo, Meru.

The Rescue Cinematic Experience
Pemberton stated that “The Rescue” was a dramatic and exhilarating cinematic event. Chai and Jimmy, however, wanted the audience relieved and hopeful. We were given the task of writing a song that was upbeat and that reflected the idea that one could believe in the impossible.
Rick Stanton, one of the UK divers, is stunned and horrified to see the boys enter the cave. Later, when Derek Anderson, the US Marine, asks, “What is the impossible?” There are two important moments in the film we were all drawn to.
It was a great adventure working with Gary Go and Aloe Blacc on something that will hopefully represent that rare moment of global joy and optimism.
Aloe Blacc, singer/songwriter from “Belief” stated that the world’s most difficult issues are only as hard as our willingness to work together as a global community to resolve them. We can overcome any obstacle if we work together.
