The Dawn Wall is a 2018 Red Bull Media House,Sender Films is scheduled to be released on September 14, 2018.
In January 2015, American climbers Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson went viral with their conquest of The Dawn Wall in free climbing, a wall of Yosemite National Park (California) that seems impossible to climb by its 915 meters high.
They were living under the wall for weeks and caught the attention of the media in a story that for Tommy Caldwell was much more than a climb. In fact, when he was 22, the climber was kidnapped by the rebels in Kyrgyzstan, his subsequent escape - which includes pushing his abductor down a cliff - the loss of a finger in an accident and the breakdown of their marriage.
In that fine line that separates the passion for something from obsession, Caldwell and his partner Jorgeson spent up to 7 years planning and studying the route until they decided to climb.
Now, three years later, Red Bull Media House, in partnership with Sender Films, will launch the film about the ascension and the whole story behind it. It seems epic.
