"Chilling and harrowing, Jungle soars in strange and unexpected ways." - Filmink
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 Austrian expat 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...
Adapting Ghinsberg’s acclaimed memoir, Aussie thriller auteur Greg McLean (Wolf Creek) takes takes us into the hot, humid and unpredictable depths of the Bolivian jungle. Starring Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) as Ghinsberg, this action-packed story of survival and self-discovery takes the audience on a tense and taut ride.
