A Film by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg

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. KON-TIKI tells about the origin of Heyerdahl’s idea and the events surrounding the group’s voyage.

    Large parts of the film were filmed in two versions at the same time, one in Norwegian, the other in English, in order to secure international funding. The Weinstein Co. is releasing the English language version in USA, as 1/3 of film was in English anyway.
