This Oscar-winning documentary chronicles the Pacific voyage of a primitive balsa raft, led by Thor Heyerdahl. While the film is very short and was unquestionably filmed on the expedition itself in 1947, it’s still very engrossing and entertaining. We see how the crew kept themselves fed, occupied, and sane.

Grade: B.

IMDB: Kon-Tiki.
