Highly political two-person art collective Soda_Jerk return with the brilliant cinema mash up TERROR NULLIUS, a hilarious, uncomfortable reimagining of Australia’s national mythology.

TERROR NULLIUS uses existing film as its raw material, splicing together footage from the likes of Mad Max: Fury Road and The Babadook with video and audio of public figures like Pauline Hanson, to create a dazzling queering and othering of Australian cinema. There’s extraordinary pleasure in watching the TERROR NULLIUS characters be released from their original films and set free to range through each other’s worlds – and our collective cultural memory. Equal parts political satire, eco-horror and road movie, it’s a political revenge fable in three acts. TERROR NULLIUS was funded by both ACMI and the Ian Potter Cultural Trust, which has now renounced its support for this “very controversial piece of art”.

A weird, dazzling, kinetic, dizzyingly ambitious, sensationally mishmashed beast of an Australian film, one part video art installation project, one part revisionist documentary, and one part, I don’t know – LSD-infused YouTube compilation video? – Luke Buckmaster, The Guardian

One hell of a ride into the dark heart of Australia; a blistering, badly behaved sample-based film that ‘confronts the horror of our contemporary moment’. – Sophia Watson, FilmInk

Festival guest: Soda_Jerk
