Accompanying the children's exhibition "In the Jungle", the Deutsche Kinemathek – Museum für Film und Fernsehen will present a film series dedicated to the theme. On each last Sunday of the month, children who have acquired an ID as a jungle explorer have free admission to the film series upon presenting the document. The series comprises a total of eight films and ends in January 2011. As is the case with the exhibition, the film series is not only about jungle fantasies but also about the destruction of this important habitat. The series kicks of with the first film adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's novel The Jungle Book. Zoltan Korda shot the story of Mowgli, who grew up with a group of bears, as a live action film and had his brother and producer install a large "jungle" with exotic plants and animals. The leading role in Korda's JUNGLE BOOK (GB 1942. June 27) is played by the Indian actor Sabu, who at the time the film was produced was already well-known for his role in The Thief of Bagdad.
