Thai junior footballers' cave ordeal gets a silver screen retelling

Thai junior footballers' cave ordeal gets a silver screen retelling

New Delhi, Sep 17 (UNI) The daring rescue of 12 junior Thailand football players and their coach trapped in a flooded cave three years ago has been made into a movie, for the first time giving insights into the dangerous rescue operation by an international team of cave divers.
'The Rescue' by Oscar-winning American directors Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin is a major draw at the 46th Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), which began last week. Part of the prestigious TIFF Docs programme, 'The Rescue' reveals the tensions and anxieties behind the rescue operation involving world class cave divers and medical specialists from around the world.
The junior football team of 12 players aged between 11 and 16 and their coach were trapped in the Tham Luang cave, one of the longest cave systems in Thailand, when they went in after a practice session in June 2018. Heavy monsoon rains flooded the cave entrance blocking their way out. The harrowing incident grabbed headlines across the world with anxious friends and families praying for their safe return. The children were celebrating a birthday party for one of them when water level began increasing inside the cave.
