Free solo takes home the Oscar®

We’re thrilled to announce that National Geographic’s Free Solo won the Oscar® for Best Documentary Feature at last night’s Academy Awards®. This is the second win for the breathtaking film depicting Alex Honnold’s ascent of El Capitan without any ropes, which also took home the Documentary BAFTA two weeks prior.

It was a good year for Dogwoof at the Oscars, with a total of four films in the running for the coveted award including Minding The Gap, RBG and Of Fathers and Sons.

A huge congratulations to directors, Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin, and of course Alex Honnold for his amazing courage and determination which made all of this possible!
