From the director of PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES and MALEFICENT: MISTRESS OF EVIL comes the Academy Award and Golden Globe Nominated film which critics call 'A BREATHTAKING CROWDPLEASER! 9I(ndieWire)... "A SHEER EPIC SPECTACLE" ((Variety). The dangers of the high seas have rarely been rendered as vivid and thrilling as in Kon-Tiki. Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl (Pål Sverre Hagen) 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 daylong journey across 8,000 kilometers, all while the world was watching. Kon-Tiki tells about the origin of Heyerdahl’s idea and the events surrounding the group’s voyage.
