The Raft

Dir. Oded Raz | 90 min
Narrative Israel 2020/2021
Hebrew with English subtitles

Four teen soccer fans are determined to support the Israeli soccer team in a critical match…even though the game is taking place in Cyprus! Inspired by the mythological journey of Kon-Tiki, the industrious (if naive!) group build a vessel, and set sail across the Mediterranean. The perils of seafaring on a DIY raft, coupled with at times tense and close quarters, prove quite the test for the youthful crew.

A beautifully-shot coming of age film, and an epic adventure for the whole family!
