Storyline

In 1973, five men and six women drifted across the Atlantic on a raft as part of a scientific experiment studying the sociology of violence, aggression and sexual attraction in human behavior. Although the project became known in the press as 'The Sex Raft', nobody expected what ultimately took place on that three month journey. Through extraordinary archive material and a reunion of the surviving members of the expedition on a full scale replica of the raft, this film tells the hidden story behind what has been described as 'one of the strangest group experiments of all time.'

Fascinating documentary
18 October 2019 | by tmbali-42315See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film. The concept of the "experiment" was interesting to me from an anthropological perspective. I was fascinated getting to know the characters and how their experience progressed. It missed a 10 because I would've been okay with it being a little longer and getting to know more about the dynamics with the characters that past away before the film began.
