The Rescue chronicles the enthralling, against-all-odds story that transfixed the world in 2018: the daring rescue of twelve boys and their coach from deep inside a flooded cave in northern Thailand. Academy Award-winning directors and producers E. Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin 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, highlighting the efforts of the Royal Thai Navy SEALs and US Special Forces and details the expert cave divers’ audacious venture to dive the boys to safety. The Rescue brings alive one of the most perilous and extraordinary rescues in modern times, shining a light on the high-risk world of cave diving, the astounding courage and compassion of the rescuers, and the shared humanity of the international community that united to save the boys.

Daniel Pemberton is an Academy Award-nominated composer who has been regularly cited as one of the most exciting and original new voices working in modern film scoring today. he was named Film Composer of the Year in 2021 by both the World Soundtrack Awards and the international film music critics association IFMCA. Constantly working with some of the most renowned names in the industry, Pemberton has scored projects for Steve Jobs, Motherless Brooklyn (both of which he received a Golden Globe nomination for), All The Money In The World, The Counsellor, Yesterday, The Trial Of The Chicago 7, Molly’s Game, One Strange Rock, Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance, The Man From UNCLE, and King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword. He also co-wrote the song “Hear My Voice” with Celeste which earned him both an Academy Award and Golden Globe nomination.
Aloe Blacc was raised by Panamanian immigrants in Southern California and grew up around the sounds of salsa, merengue, and cumbia. He initially developed his own taste by throwing himself into hip-hop before trying out his soulful voice to other ends. Across three albums, his sound evolved and grew, finding a pocket that reflects the long and beautiful history of American soul with timeless, descriptive songwriting that speaks to the broad range of human experience, from platonic love to love for humanity, from politics to aspiration. Versatile and compassionate, his songwriting is classic in a way that makes categorization irrelevant; indeed, Blacc’s lyrics have been paired with dance music and country – always to stirring effect. Aloe Blacc isn’t defined by genre. Beloved hits like “I Need A Dollar”, “The Man”, and “Wake Me Up” with Avicii may not fall under the same musical umbrella but they’re united by how they make the listener feel. That’s Blacc’s wheelhouse, the place where he excels. He considers his songwriting genre thematic.
Gary Go is an award-winning and multi-platinum-selling singer, songwriter, composer, producer, and multimedia artist. He has toured internationally, playing arenas and stadiums with Lady Gaga, Snow Patrol, Take That, Benny Benassi, and MIKA. Gary Go recently collaborated with Award-winning composer Daniel Pemberton and pop artist Aloe Blacc on the closing title song for The Rescue, the critically acclaimed documentary by Oscar-winning directors Elisabeth Chai Vasarhelyi & Jimmy Chin (Free Solo). Go and Pemperton have also co-written a featured song for the forthcoming Dreamworks Animation feature Bad Guys as well as the title theme for Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs & Ham.
