The Raft (12A)

Dir: Marcus Lindeen

Swe/Den/US, 2018, 97 mins

A superb documentary about a bizarre social experiment run by an anthropologist Santiago Genoves in 1973 who wanted to prove that violence underlay all human relations. He recruited 11 men and women from all over the world, and planned to sail them in a raft from Europe to Mexico. They set sail and he was sure conflict would soon arise, the problem is that the crew didn't conform to his prejudices. A fascinating study in the dynamics of power and control featuring archive footage of the voyage alongside interviews with the surviving crew.
