If ever there was a film worth seeking out on the big screen in Japan’s network of independent cinemas, it’s “Free Solo,” the Academy Award-winning, vertical-axis documentary that tells the tale of Alex Honnold’s climb up the face of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park, California.

Consider this: When the face of El Capitan was first climbed in 1958, it took three climbers — Warren Harding, Wayne Merry and George Whitmore — 47 days to make it to the top. Honnold completed his attempt in three hours and 56 minutes.
