Still image from the film Long Weekend
In director Colin Eggleston’s classic Australian thriller flick, a couple, Peter (John Hargreaves) and Marcia (Briony Behets) decide to spend the weekend camping in the wilderness.  Tension mounts between the two as they move through the landscape with increasingly disrespectful treatment to the environment and animals in their path. Much to their horror, nature begins to strike back in increasingly cruel ways. Special Jury Award at the 1978 Paris Film Festival.
