A social experiment in international waters

In 1973, anthropologist Santiago Genovés recruited eleven strangers to sail across the Atlantic on a rudimentary raft. According to Genovés the goal of the experiment was “peace on earth”, but it soon became clear that the crew of what the tabloids labeled the “sex raft” were chosen for other reasons. In THE RAFT, the surviving members of the expedition are gathered to debate and reflect upon this peculiar experiment, and the resulting film is an intelligent and highly engrossing discussion on gender roles, social psychology and the intersection between science and reality tv.
