The gripping cave rescue of 12 boys and their coach has been told from different perspectives, but for the first time, hear straight from the survivors themselves in the documentary feature The Trapped 13: How We Survived The Thai Cave. Coming on October 5, the film exclusively features members of the real Wild Boars team and captures the intimate details of their remarkable fight for survival.

Pailin Wedel, who made history as Thailand’s first-ever Emmy winner with the Best Documentary prize at the 49th International Emmy Awards for Hope Frozen: A Quest To Live Twice, delivers a factual yet riveting retelling. Alongside Coach Eak and selected members of the Wild Boars team, the film also features first-hand accounts from some of the boys’ family members, local experts and officials, as well as international contributors to the rescue mission, adding to the public record of the dramatic rescue.

Initially, Wedel was concerned whether recounting their ordeal might prove traumatic for the boys. But through informal chats with the boys and their families, she found that they wanted to tell their stories, and it was even cathartic for some.

“The stories that came out were full of hope, setbacks, perseverance, and even humor,” said Wedel. “Many of the boys felt misunderstood. They had things to say that had never been heard before. That’s when I knew a documentary was not only possible but also important — their perspective is crucial to understanding this event that caught the attention of people around the world.”

See the cave rescue through the eyes of the survivors in The Trapped 13: How We Survived The Thai Cave on October 5th — only on Netflix.
