“The Cave” is the winner of the Directors’ Choice Best Humanitarian Film Award at the Sedona Film Festival.

The film features the rescue mission that gripped the world.

"The Cave" is a Thai film that tells the story of the incredible rescue of the “Wild Boars” Soccer Team – 12 boys and their coach who in July 2018 casually set off to explore Tham Luang cave in northern Thailand and were inescapably trapped by sudden monsoon flood waters. Against all the odds, hastily assembled teams of heroic and selfless cave divers and responders rushed to the site from around the world and saved all the boys and coach after 9 days during which no one knew if they were alive or dead.

"The Cave" delves into the deep spiritual and cultural resonance the event had on the Thai people, as well as on the millions worldwide transfixed to the story and hoping for a miracle.

Phillip England Center for the Performing Arts is located at 210 Camp Lincoln Road in Camp Verde.
