The Rescue Trailer Is Here, Based On Thailand Cave Accident
NatGeo Docs drops the first official trailer for a documentary film titled The Rescue, from filmmakers E. Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin.
The film chronicles the enthralling, against-all-odds story that transfixed the world in 2018: the daring rescue of 12 boys and their coach from deep inside a flooded cave in northern Thailand.
The docu-drama shines a light on the high-risk world of cave diving, the astounding courage and compassion of the rescuers, as well as the shared humanity of the international community that united to save the boys.
The filmmakers keep viewers on the edge of their seats as they use a wealth of never-before-seen material and exclusive interviews to piece together the high-stakes mission, highlight the efforts of the Royal Thai Navy SEALs and U.S. Special Forces, and detail the expert cave divers’ audacious venture to save the boys.
The film brings to light the common humanity, incredible resilience and absolute morality that define us as humans.
