A DISCUSSION WITH CHAI VASARHELYI & JIMMY CHIN
09:30-11:00 Tuesday 21.03, Social Cinema, Kunsthal Charlottenborg
CHAI VASARHELYI & JIMMY CHIN excel at exploring the motivations of risk-takers. Together they have directed Meru (2015), The Rescue (2021) and the Oscar-winning Free Solo (2018), films that each illuminate the human side of suspenseful adventures. Their new film Wild Life (2023), playing at CPH:DOX, tells the love story of Kris McDivitt Tompkins and Douglas Tompkins, who made it their mission to create National Parks throughout Chile and Argentina after growing the successful brands Patagonia, North Face and Esprit. Vasarhelyi & Chin will discuss their approach to getting guarded people to tell their stories.
