From award-winning documentary filmmaker E. Chai Vasarhelyi (“MERU”) and world-renowned photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin comes National Geographic Documentary Film’s FREE SOLO, a stunning, intimate and unflinching portrait of the free soloist climber Alex Honnold, as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream: climbing the face of the world’s most famous rock … the 3,000ft El Capitan in Yosemite National Park … without a rope.
Celebrated as one of the greatest athletic feats of any kind, Honnold’s climb set the ultimate standard: perfection or death. Succeeding in this challenge, Honnold enters his story in the annals of human achievement. FREE SOLO is both an edge-of-your seat thriller and an inspiring portrait of an athlete who exceeded our current understanding of human physical and mental potential. The result is a triumph of the human spirit.

MARCO BELTRAMI is a two-time Oscar nominated composer. He has collaborated with many iconic film directors including Kathryn Bigelow, James Mangold, Angelina Jolie, Robert Rodriguez, Luc Besson, Guillermo Del Toro, Wes Craven, Alex Proyas, Jonathan Mostow, Roland Joffé, Jodie Foster, David E. Kelley and Tommy Lee Jones.

The composer established an early reputation as a genre innovator with his non-traditional horror scores for the Scream franchise. Beltrami’s musical palette has since expanded to virtually all film genres. Beltrami has received accolades for his music including two Academy Award nominations for Best Score: 3:10 to Yuma, starring Russell Crowe and Christian Bale, and for Best Picture winner The Hurt Locker, starring Jeremy Renner. In 2011 Beltrami won a Golden Satellite Award (Best Film Score of the Year) for Soul Surfer. Beltrami scored the Marvel film Logan and Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut, First They Killed My Father. He also wrote the theme for the hit video game Fortnite. Beltrami most recently scored the critically-acclaimed box-office hit A Quiet Place, which was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Score and shortlisted for Best Score for the Oscars, and Dan Gilroy’s Velvet Buzzsaw for Netflix. Beltrami has received an Emmy nomination for National Geographic’s 2019 Oscar winning documentary Free Solo, (with co-composer Brandon Roberts) for Outstanding Music Composition for a Documentary, Series or Special. 

He has lent his voice to such unique hit films as Live Free or Die Hard, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, and I, Robot. His other scores include The Homesman directed by Tommy Lee Jones, the zombie comedy Warm Bodies directed by Jonathan Levine, the final installment of the Bruce Willis action series A Good Day To Die Hard, Snowpiercer starring Chris Evans and directed by Joon-ho Bong, the Brad Pitt action thriller World War Z, James Mangold’s The Wolverine, the remake of the classic horror hit Carrie, The Fantastic Four reboot directed by Josh Trank, Columbia Pictures’ holiday comedy The Night Before  also directed by Jonathan Levine and starring Seth Rogan and Joseph Gordon Levitt and The Shallows starring Jack Huston and Blake Lively. 

Most recently, Beltrami has scored Jordan Peele’s The Twilight Zone for CBS All Access, the Lionsgate comedy Long Shot starring Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen, and the Zac Efron-starrer Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Vile, and Evil. Upcoming for Beltrami is Twentieth Century Fox’s action drama Ford v. Ferrari, directed by James Mangold and starring Christian Bale and Matt Damonand Underwater (Twentieth Century Fox), directed by William Eubank and starring Kristen Stewart.
