Hitch a ride into the dark heart of Australia with Soda_Jerk’s Terror Nullius, a blistering, badly behaved sample-based film that confronts the horror of our contemporary moment. Equal parts political satire, eco-horror and road movie, it’s a rogue remapping of national mythology, where a misogynistic remark is met with the sharp beak of a bird, feminist bike gangs rampage and bicentenary celebrations are ravaged by flesh-eating sheep.
By intricately remixing fragments of Australia’s pop culture and film legacy, Terror Nullius interrogates the unstable entanglement of fiction that underpins this country’s vexed sense of self. Following the success of The Was, their 2016 collaboration with The Avalanches, Soda_Jerk return with a work that’s dark, hopeful, irreverent and urgent. (Formed in Sydney in 2002, Soda_Jerk is a two-person art collective who work at the intersection of documentary and speculative fiction).
