Edited by our Columbia County neighbor, Bob Eisenhardt, The Rescue does the near impossible – it makes thrilling suspense out of a situation to which we already know the outcome. The Rescue is about the heroic operation to save the Wild Boars, a boys’ soccer team, stuck in a flooded cave in Thailand. Directed by Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin who made Mehru and won the Oscar for Free Solo.
