IFI and aemi are delighted that Soda_Jerk will be able to join us for the Irish premiere of their incendiary feature Terror Nullius.
Part political satire, eco-horror and road movie, Terror Nullius is a 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.
