The Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl crossed the Pacific ocean in a balsa wood raft in 1947, together with five men, to prove that South Americans could have crossed the sea and settled on Polynesian islands all the way back in pre-Columbian times.

Kon-Tiki opens at the Ritz Five on Friday, May 17.
