Nominated for Best Foreign Film at the 2013 Academy Awards and Golden Globes. Codirectors Espen Sanberg and Joachim Ronning reteam for this sweeping adventure detailing Thor Heyerdahl's daring attempt to prove that early settlers from South America once populated Polynesia by sailing across the Pacific on a simple balsawood raft. Rejected by every publisher he approached to print his unusual thesis, Heyerdahl (Pal Sverre Hagen) eventually decided that the only way to prove it was to make the journey himself as the entire world watched. Norwegian/English/French/Swedish with subtitles. 96 mins. Rated: PG-13
