Film Screening Terror Nullius by Soda Jerk

Community Event

Part political satire, part eco-horror and part road movie

Part political satire, part eco-horror and part road movie, Terror Nullius is a political re-venge fable that offers an unwriting of Australian national mythologies. The apocalyptic desert camps of Mad Max 2 become the site of refugee detention, flesh-eating sheep are re-cast as anti-colonial insurgents and a feminist motorcycle gang goes vigilante on Mel Gibson. Binding together a documentary impulse with the bent plot lines of Australian film texts, So-da Jerk’s revisionist history opens a willful narrative space where cinema fictions and histori-cal facts permeate each other in new ways.

Soda Jerk formed in Sydney in 2002 and are currently based in New York. Soda Jerk is a two-person art collective interested in the politics of images and ways of dismantling their inherent hierarchies. Predominantly working with video, their piece in Just Not Australian is an Ian Potter Moving Image Commission for the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Melbourne. A hybrid mashup of Australian film texts, this cinema-length work, titled Terror Nullius, offers an unwriting of Australian national mythologies.
