Making Weekend of Summer Last

Australia, 1981 (MIFF 1981)

Director: David Poltorak, Paul Leadon

A parapsycomical look behind the scenes at the production of Australia's latest biggish-budget feature film. A film, in fact, which at last deals realistically with the power of the indigenous supernatural.
