Hero Speaker Series: Jimmy Chin
August 7 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Jimmy Chin is coming to Studio/E.
Yes, that Jimmy Chin: the adventurer, filmmaker, and recent Academy Award® nominee.
Jimmy is known for capturing the best adventure athletes in the world as they defy human achievement, and in order to do so, he is a world-class athlete himself. In collaboration with his wife and fellow filmmaker Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi, Jimmy brings people on journeys that few would ever brave.
His 2015 film, Meru, tells the gripping story of survival and perseverance as he and two of the globe’s best climbers attempt to scale the most dangerous peak in the Himalayas. Free Solo, which is up for an Oscar in the feature documentary category, follows athlete Alex Honnold as he climbs the 3,000-foot El Capitan without a rope. These films have been met with much acclaim, and it’s easy to see why: his skill in capturing these moments is only rivaled by his capacity to keep up with the adventurers in these high-risk environments – like skiing off the summit of Mount Everest or climbing 1,500 feet of smooth granite.
A Minnesota native, Jimmy is coming to Studio/E to share his stories about exploration, resilience, and how he captures the extreme.
