Still on my Peru theme, Kon-Tiki – Norway’s Oscar-nominated Foreign-Language entry – follows the real-life adventures of explorer Thor Heyerdahl, who, in 1947, embarked on sailed from Peru to Polynesia on a balsa wood raft. (His goal was to prove that Polynesia had been discovered and settled by ancient Peruvians) The film looks good, no?

PS. ALSO didn’t film in Peru…..
