(Marcus Lindeen, 2018, Sweden/Denmark, 99 minutes)
A documentary revisiting a notorious social experiment from 1973, The Raft revisits some of the participants of Santiago Genovés’s study wherein five men and six women, all physically attractive (and chosen in large part for this trait), crossed the Atlantic on a raft. Obviously dubbed “The Sex Raft” in the press, The Raft shows that the reality of the experiment was much more useful and optimistic for the future of mankind than the lascivious angles that predominated contemporary discussion of the endeavor (discussion enabled by Genovés himself).
