A bold and inspiring epic nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at this year’s Academy Awards, KON–TIKI recounts one of the greatest real-life adventures of the twentieth century. In 1947, the world was gripped with excitement as the young Norwegian adventurer Thor Heyerdahl embarked on an astonishing expedition across the Pacific Ocean to prove that pre-Columbian South Americans were the first to settle the Polynesian Islands. Based on Heyerdahl’s own 1950 Oscar winning documentary about the voyage, KON-TIKI delivers extraordinary visuals and understated character study in a daring historical drama.
