Flotten

102 minuter Dokumentär Premiär 21 september, 2018

Sommaren 1973 reste sex kvinnor och fem män med en flotte över Atlanten i ett av världshistoriens märkligaste vetenskapsexperiment. Syftet var att studera våld och konflikter men expeditionen blev snabbt omskriven i världspressen som ”sexflotten”. Kapten ombord var svenska Maria Björnstam. Fyrtio år senare återförenas hon med delar av besättningen på en kopia av den ursprungliga flotten för att tillsammans ta reda på vad som egentligen hände under den tre månader långa och livsfarliga resan. De personliga berättelserna och ett unikt arkivmaterial målar upp en oväntad historia om ett experiment där försökskaninerna till slut vände sig mot sin forskare.
