The 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 to settle on Polynesian Islands. After financing the trips with loans and donations they set off on an epic 101 day long trip across 8,000 kilometers, while the world was watching. This movie tells about the origin of Heyerdahl’s idea and the events surrounding the voyage.
This series runs through Sunday, September 22 and will also feature Amour, No and A Royal Affair. Tickets for all five films may be purchased in advance for $30. Single tickets for each feature are $7.50.
