US Filmmaker Tells Story of Thai Cave Rescue

发布者: 五毒 | 发布时间: 2022-8-5 18:30| 查看数: 43| 评论数: 0|



[00:00.04]Four years ago, a group of 12 boys and their soccer coach

[00:05.04]were rescued from a cave in Thailand.

[00:09.40]Now, their story has been told by award-winning American filmmaker

[00:15.04]Ron Howard in his new film Thirteen Lives.

[00:20.56]The children and their coach were exploring the Tham Luang cave

[00:25.40]in northern Thailand's Chiang Rai in June 2018.

[00:31.64]Heavy rains flooded the cave and trapped them underground.

[00:38.52]They survived nine days in a partly flooded area of the cave

[00:43.92]before being discovered by two British divers.

[00:49.52]But it took members of Thailand's navy and international volunteers

[00:54.88]another eight days to bring them to safety.

[00:59.76]Thirteen Lives recreates what happened inside the cave

[01:04.68]and above it on the ground during those 17 days.

[01:10.28]Volunteers, engineers and soldiers

[01:14.28]removed millions of liters of water from the cave.

[01:19.60]They also drilled through rocks

[01:22.36]looking for openings to reach the boys.

[01:27.32]Howard spoke to Reuters at the film's

[01:30.28]first showing in London earlier this week.

[01:35.12]He said, "It's not just about the heroic divers…

[01:39.32]it really is an entire community and a country and a lot of countries

[01:44.84]ultimately participating and making something amazing come true."

[01:51.40]The film stars American Viggo Mortensen and Ireland's Colin Farrell

[01:57.48]as British divers Rick Stanton and John Volanthen.

[02:03.16]Australian actor Joel Edgerton plays the part of Harry Harris.

[02:09.64]Harris was brought on to help when possible ways

[02:13.00]to save the boys were running out.

[02:16.56]The Thai performers in the movie included professional

[02:20.48]and nonprofessional actors.

[02:24.12]Many of the young boys playing the members

[02:27.16]of the soccer team had no acting experience.

[02:31.84]Stanton, Volanthen and members of the international

[02:36.20]rescue dive team attended the London showing.

[02:41.48]They praised Howard's representation of the events.

[02:47.16]"I think it's good for people to know what happened.

[02:50.80]It's not a documentary, but it's pretty much true to life," Stanton said.

[02:57.76]Thirteen Lives will be released

[03:00.44]in a small number of U.S. and British theaters on July 29.

[03:07.20]It will be released worldwide

[03:09.56]on the Amazon Prime Video service on August 5.

[03:15.24]I'm Jonathan Evans.
