Norway’s Official Entry for the 2013 Foreign-Language Film Oscar! Directors Joachim Ronning & Espen Sandberg In Person!
Discussion following with co-directors Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg.
2012, Nordisk Fil Distribution, 118 min, Norway, Dir: Joachim Ronning, Espen Sandberg

Norway’s grandest production to date translates Thor Heyerdahl’s intrepid 1947 journey across the Pacific on a primitive raft into a larger-than-life, visually dazzling epic. Ethnographer Thor (Pal Sver Haggen, whom The Hollywood Reporter writes “has something of the young Peter O’Toole about him, evincing charisma and madness nearly in equal measure”), along with a motley crew, assembles a raft inspired by the pre-Colombian Incas as a means of proving his theory that the Polynesian islands were settled by South Americans crossing the Pacific. What follows is the Peru-to-Polynesia excursion, which co-directors Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg and a crew of hundreds fill with first-rate adventure, high-seas gravitas and nail-biting suspense, set against majestic cinematography. In English and Norwegian with English subtitles.
