Kon-Tiki Movie Trailer

Here’s the official movie trailer of Kon-Tiki, a Norwegian historical drama movie directed by Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg and starring Pal Sverre Valheim Hagen:

“The dramatized true story of legendary explorer Thor Heyerdal’s epic 4,300 miles crossing of the Pacific on a balsa wood raft in 1947, in an effort prove it was possible for South Americans to settle in Polynesia in pre-Columbian times.”

Take a look to the Norwegian poster of the film:

Heyerdal did manage to cross the Pacific, but according to DNA evidence he got it wrong: genetic testing showed that the ancestors of the Polynesians actually came from southeast Asia.

Anyway, Kon-Tiki is still a beautiful movie that I definitely recommend you to see!
