When the Wild Boars soccer team, consisting of 12 schoolboys and their coach, became trapped deep inside a waterlogged cave in northern Thailand during the summer of 2018, the efforts to rescue them drew the concerned attention of the world. In this thrilling, visceral recreation of events, Irish filmmaker Tom Waller tells the story from the perspective of the people who often made selfless decisions as they witnessed young lives at stake. A number of protagonists involved in the actual rescue appear in The Cave cast as themselves, including the celebrated Jim Warny, the heroic cave diver drafted in from County Clare. MH
There will be a post-screening Q&A with the director
