View the screening of TERROR NULLIUS at the Museum of Sydney. This artwork forms part of the Just Not Australian exhibition curated by Artspace.

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

Soda Jerk is a duo who are fundamentally interested in the politics of images: how they circulate, whom they benefit and how they can be undone. They work with sample-based video at the intersection of rogue documentary film and speculative fiction.

Limited seats available via free registration.
