MIFF Talks Podcast: Jungle
Opening this year’s festival, the MIFF Premiere Fund-supported Jungle tells the gloriously tense, real-life survival story of Yossi Ghinsberg (played by Daniel Radcliffe), who at 22 joined two friends on what was supposed to be the adventure of a lifetime. But their dream trip into the uncharted Amazon soon turned into a wilderness nightmare from which not all of the men returned.
The real Yossi Ghinsberg joins director Greg McLean to discuss the jaw-dropping, head-shaking stories behind the film and what’s really needed to survive in the jungle. Moderated by Sandy George
Recorded live at the Wheeler Centre on Saturday 5 August, 2017. Podcast produced by Al Cossar, Adele Moreira and Max Minkoff for Melbourne International Film Festival 2017.
