Don’t miss a night of intense survival drama and see the Gold Coast hinterland as you’ve never seen it before!

Jungle stars Daniel Radcliffe and was shot on the Gold Coast last year and the Gold Coast Film Festival is proud to present the Queensland Premiere screening and post-film filmmaker Q&A.

Young Israeli Yossi Ghinsberg (Daniel Radcliffe, Swiss Army ManHarry Potter ) leaves a safe future behind to chase an improbable dream in the mysterious depths of the Amazon rainforest.

For a year he journeys on the path well-travelled, but when he and two new fellow adventurers, Kevin Gale (Alex RussellUnbroken) and Marcus Stamm (Joel JacksonPeter Allen: Not the Boy Next Door ), meet the darkly charismatic Karl Ruchprecter (Thomas KretschmannAvengers: Age of Ultron ), and follow him into the jungle, what begins as the realisation of a dream soon turns into a harrowing psychological test of faith and fortitude.

Based on the true-life international best-selling memoir by Yossi Ghinsberg, this gut-churning tale of survival is worthy of placement next to the highly impressive likes of Into The WildDeliveranceWild127 Hours, and Alive. In a career-best performance, Daniel Radcliffe is superb as Ghinsberg, a young man travelling the world in the early 1980s, against the better wishes of his strict parents.

A survival film that marches to the delirious beat of its own hallucinogenic drum, Jungle bows inventively before the bad guy to end all bad guys: Mother Nature.
