aemi is delighted that Soda_Jerk will join us for the Irish premiere of their incendiary feature TERROR NULLIUS.
Part political satire, eco-horror and road movie, TERROR NULLIUS is a found footage political revenge fable which offers an unwriting of Australian national mythologies. Binding together a documentary impulse with the bent plotlines 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.
TERROR NULLIUS was commissioned by the Australia Centre for the Moving Image. Screening supported by the Glasgow Short Film Festival.
Soda_Jerk were interviewed by Tara Brady for The Irish Times on Monday March 18th. To read this article in full see here
