“The surprisingly short leap from radical academic study to lurid exploitation is navigated with wit, sensitivity and rueful social awareness” –Variety
In 1973, five men and six women sailed across the Atlantic on a small boat as part of a radical social experiment. The aim of anthropologist Santiago Genovés: to study the roots of sex and violence upon this adrift laboratory. But the scientist’s plan goes awry when members of the group challenge his expectations. The Raft is a captivating, witty, and ultimately heartening look at human behavior.
