The festival of Jewish cinema kicks off with Daniel Radcliffe in harrowing survival tale Jungle

In 1981, a 22-year-old Israeli adventurer called Yossi Ghinsberg entered the Bolivian jungle with three companions in search of a lost tribe. What happened next pushed him to the limits of human endurance. Ghinsberg's ordeal is dramatised in the new Australian film Jungle, directed by Greg McLean (Wolf Creek) and starring Daniel Radcliffe as Ghinsberg.

The film opened the 2017 Melbourne International Film Festival and now it's getting a special screening at 7pm on Saturday September 23 ahead of the 2017 Jewish International Film Festival, which takes place in October-November. As well as the film screening guests will get a special preview of the festival program, and Yossi Ghinsberg himself will be there to take part in a Q&A after the movie. Trust us: when you witness what he went through you're going to have a lot of questions for him. Tickets to this event are on sale now and tickets to JIFF go on sale later this year.
