Watch the festival trailer for Jungle, which will have its world premiere at the Melbourne International Film Festival on August 3. Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter franchise) stars as real-life adventurer Yossi Ghinsberg.
Based on Ghinsberg’s memoir, the Australian survival thriller is directed by Greg McLean (Wolf Creek) and written by Justin Monjo (Bait). Thomas Kretschmann, Alex Russell, Joel Jackson, and Yasmin Kassim round out the cast.
In the early 1980s, 22-year-old Israeli backpacker Yossi Ghinsberg and
two friends – Swiss teacher Marcus Stamm and American photographer Kevin
Gale – set off from the Bolivian city of La Paz on what was supposed to
be the adventure of a lifetime. Leading the way into the uncharted
Amazon was an Austrian expat named Karl Ruprechter, who had met the
friends just days before and claimed to be familiar with the region. But
their dream trip soon turned into a wilderness nightmare from which not
all of the men returned.
