Description

In 1947, Norwegian scientist and ethnographer Thor Heyerdahl set out to make history by crossing the Pacific Ocean on the Kon-Tiki, a balsa wood raft, with an inexperienced five-man crew. His mission on the voyage was to prove a theory that South American natives in pre-Columbus times could have migrated over 4,000 miles by sea from Peru to Polynesia, as the world waited anxiously to hear his fate. Based on the amazing true story of Heyerdahl’s voyage, which spawned a best-selling book and an Oscar-winning documentary in 1951, this Academy Award-nominated drama is the ultimate man vs nature adventure tale.
