Kon-Tiki is also the name of Heyerdahl's book; the Academy Award-winning documentary film chronicling his adventures; and the dramatised feature film nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
Heyerdahl believed that people from South America could have settled Polynesia in pre-Columbian times.
Although most anthropologists as of had come to the conclusion they did not, in , new genetic evidence was uncovered by Erik Thorsby that Easter Island inhabitants do have some South American DNA, lending credence to at least some of Heyerdahl's theses.
His aim in mounting the Kon-Tiki expedition was to show, by using only the materials and technologies available to those people at the time, that there were no technical reasons to prevent them from having done so.
Although the expedition carried some modern equipment, such as a radio, watches, charts, sextant, and metal knives, Heyerdahl argued they were incidental to the purpose of proving that the raft itself could make the journey.
The Kon-Tiki expedition was funded by private loans, along with donations of equipment from the United States Army. Heyerdahl and a small team went to Peru, where, with the help of dockyard facilities provided by the Peruvian authorities, they constructed the raft out of balsa logs and other native materials in an indigenous style as recorded in illustrations by Spanish conquerers.
The trip began on April 28, Heyerdahl and five companions sailed the raft for days over km 4, miles across the Pacific Ocean before smashing into a reef at Raroia in the Tuamotu Islands on August 7, The crew made successful landfall and all returned safely.
Thor Heyerdahl's book about his experience became a bestseller. It appeared with great success in English in , also in many other languages.
A documentary motion picture about the expedition, also called Kon-Tiki was produced from a write-up and expansion of the crew's filmstrip notes and won an Academy Award in It was directed by Thor Heyerdahl and edited by Olle Nordemar.

The scenes depicting Heyerdahl's experiences on Fatu Hiva were shot in Thailand with Thai extras who do not resemble native Polynesians, and who are shown holding compound spears not typical of the Marquesas Islands,  and weaving rattan baskets, of which neither the technique nor the plant material are native to French Polynesia.
The film focuses on Heyerdahl's theory that Polynesia was first populated with humans from Peru, but it ignores the Norwegian's more ethnocentric speculations that the original Kon-Tiki voyage was undertaken by a race of tall white bearded people with red hair.
Heyerdahl conjectured that Amerindian civilizations like the Aztecs and the Incas only arose with the help of advanced technical knowledge brought by early European voyagers, and that these white people were eventually driven out of Peru and fled westward on rafts.
The film has the crew worrying about getting sucked into "the Galapagos maelstrom", with a book shown that purportedly illustrates the maelstrom.
The illustration is actually artist Harry Clarke's illustration for Edgar Allan Poe's short story, " A Descent Into the Maelström ", a fictional account of a whirlpool in Norwegian waters.
The description of its roar, which can be heard from nine miles away, is taken directly from Poe's story. Although Heyerdahl did refer to "treacherous eddies" near the Galapagos, his chief worry there was that "strong ocean currents" could sweep the raft back towards Central America.
The portrayal of the raft's second-in-command, Herman Watzinger, proved controversial in Norway. Actor Baasmo Christiansen acknowledged the physical differences with a smile.
He was everything I'm not. Other minor alterations from Heyerdahl's book include the ship's parrot being eaten by a shark in the film its real-life counterpart was simply washed overboard by a large wave.
Kon-Tiki opened in Norway on 24 August , setting a weekend national box office record. Kon-Tiki opened in the United States on 26 April in a limited release , and was screened in three cinemas.
On 3 May , the film expanded to screen in fifty more cinemas and was a major box office success in its home country, Norway, and has since been gathering critical acclaim internationally.
The Hollywood Reporter ' s Sheri Linden says of Kon-Tiki : "This retelling of a bare-bones enterprise by six men took a crew of hundreds, and the results are nothing if not polished, with handsome period detail and visual effects that are convincing, if sometimes ostentatious.
The widescreen lensing the film was shot mainly in and around Malta doesn't overdo the sense of wonder and, with a strong assist from the sound design, conveys the men's vulnerability to the elements.
Andrew Barker of Variety notes that some may take issue with the artistic license the filmmakers took in dramatizing some of the characters and events of the voyage, but describes the film overall as "a visually impeccable, professionally crafted modern vessel that lacks any of the patched-together soul of its subject".
While Michael Nordine of LA Weekly laments that Kon-Tiki "could have used a bit more [shark-attracting] blood in the water", he concedes that the "crystal-clear waves are a sight to behold nevertheless".
The site's consensus is: "A well-crafted retelling of an epic true story, Kon-Tiki is a throwback to old-school adventure filmmaking that's exciting and entertaining in spite of its by-the-book plotting.
