Standing ovation for The Rescue at Kendal


Staff member
Kendal Mountain Festival director Clive Allen showed me this video he took on Friday.  It shows a standing ovation for the film, The Rescue, a documentary on the well known, successful rescue of the football team from a flooded cave in Thailand.  According to Clive, this is only the second ever standing ovation any film or presentation has received at the festival.  Much deserved I say. 


Unfortunately due to work we couldn't be there and have yet to see the film.  If anyone sees it on again near the Dales please let us know.
