SPEECH BY: Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi, Jimmy Chin, Evan Hayes and Shannon Dill

FILM: “Free Solo”

JIMMY CHIN:
Oh shit. Breathe.

ELIZABETH CHAI VASARHELYI:
Thank you, thank you. Thank you, National Geographic for believing in us and for hiring women and people of color because we only help make the films better. Thank you to all the amazing people who worked on this film: Evan, Shannon.

JIMMY CHIN:
Our high angle team.

ELIZABETH CHAI VASARHELYI:
It was a work of an army and we appreciate you in every way. Thank you to our families, especially our two kids. Marina, I know you’re here.

JIMMY CHIN:
James.

ELIZABETH CHAI VASARHELYI:
And then thank you to Sanni McCandless. You climbed your own mountain that day, so thank you, Sanni. This film would be so boring without you, I’m just saying. Okay, anyway, thank you, Alex Honnold for giving us courage and teaching us how to believe in the impossible and inspiring us. This film is for everyone who believes in the impossible.

JIMMY CHIN:
Thank you. Thank you.
