Plot

Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl crossed the Pacific ocean in a balsa wood raft in 1947, together with five men, to prove that South Americans already back in pre-Columbian times could have crossed the sea and settle on Polynesian islands. After gathering financing for the trip with loans and donations, they set off on an epic 101 day-long journey across 8,000 kilometers, all while the world was watching. Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg direct 'Kon-Tiki', which was nominated in 2013 for the Oscars in the category of best foreign language film.
