This Weeks Film - THE RESCUE

Film@BirrTheatre brings you the best of Irish, world and independent cinema on the theatre's big screen.

Remember years ago the true story of the against all odds rescue of 12 boys and their soccer coach from a cave in Northern Thailand? Well, believe it or not - that was 2018! It was seriously - heart in your mouth and white knuckles as it enthralled and engaged us by the dangerous and risky undertaking of saving these people.

An outing to explore a nearby system of caves after soccer practice transformed into a two-week saga of survival and a story that would capture the world’s attention!

THE RESCUE chronicles the dramatic 2018 rescue of those trapped deep inside a flooded cave. Academy Award®-winning directors and producers E. Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin reveal the perilous world of cave diving, the bravery of Thai military who worked with a team of international divers to figure out how to penetrate the cave system and find the boys and their coach, all whilst under the scrutiny of news teams and crews from around the world who had set up camp to follow this dangerous and heart wrenching story.

The combined rescuers, alongside the dedication of the entire community that made great sacrifices to save these young boys, was harrowing and never once taken for granted.

With exclusive access and never-before-seen footage from The Rescue, this film tells the story of the imagination, determination and unprecedented teamwork displayed during this heroic edge-of-your-seat mission with life-or-death stakes.........and BREATH!

A spectacle on the Big Screen, not to be missed.
