After days of uncertainty, the Balsa raft finally finds its designated course, from Peru to Polynesia, 8,000 km or 5,000 mile on the pacific ocean, and the men aboard Kon-Tiki, Thor Heyerdahl and his companions finally relax under the sky in the open sea, and discuss how they have followed the same stars that those travellers followed more than 3,000 years ago.

In Kon Tiki, the Norwegian feature film on the famous Kon-Tiki adventure. The film was shortlisted for the best foreign language film Oscar this year. The black & white silent film that the crew of the Kon Tiki raft had recorded had won an Oscar in 1952.

In Kon-Tiki, Norwegian with English subtitle.
