Event Information

In 1973, five men and six women sailed across the Atlantic on a raft as part of a social experiment and scientific study of violence, aggression, sex and group behaviour, conducted by a radical Mexican anthropologist. Everything was filmed and documented in a diary. But theory is one thing - practice is another. 

Over 40 years later, Swedish artist and filmmaker Marcus Lindeen brings the original crew together again for the first time since the experiment, on a faithful copy of the raft reconstructed in a film studio, to look back at the three intense months they spent together, isolated and without privacy to create a compelling portrait of both an idea and era.
