13 Oct: Dinner and A Movie: Kon Tiki (2013)

Movie: The Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl crossed the Pacific Ocean in a balsawood raft in 1947, together with five men, to prove that South Americans back in pre-Columbian times could have crossed the ocean and settled on Polynesian islands. After financing the trips with loans and donations, they set off on an epic 101-day-long trip across 8000 kilometers, while the world was waiting for the result of the trip.

The film tells about the origin of the idea, the preparations, and the events on the trip. The “Kon-Tiki” was named after the Inca sun god, Viracocha, and “Kon-Tiki” is an old name for this god. Heyerdahl filmed the expedition, which later became the Academy Award winning documentary in 1951, and he wrote a book about the expedition that was translated into 70 languages and sold more than 50 millions copies around the world.

This Movie is rated Rated PG – 13
