In the 1940s, we are invited to follow Thor Heyerdahl as he gathers a crew of Scandinavians attempting to cross the Pacific on a balsam raft. A delight to watch, the film is all about the sheer excitement of the ocean and it is as magnificent as it is beautiful and as dangerous. 118 minutes. Norwegian/Swedish with English subtitles. 2013
Films start at 1:30pm. Refreshments for attendees are served at 1pm. Lunch (not included) is available in the Kaffestugan, which is open until 3pm every Saturday.
