Soda_Jerk’s Terror Nullius is a political revenge fable which offers an unwriting of Australian national mythology. This experimental samplebased film works entirely within and against the official archive to achieve a queering and othering of Australian cinema. Part political satire, ecohorror and road movie, Terror Nullius is a world in which minorities and animals conspire, and notsonice white guys finish last. Where idyllic beaches host raceriots, governments poll loverights, and the perils of hypermasculinity are overshadowed only by the enduring horror of Australia’s colonising myth of terra nullius.
Formed in Sydney in 2002, Soda_Jerk is a two person art collective who work at the intersection of documentary and speculative fiction. They are fundamentally interested in the politics of images: how they circulate, whom they benefit, and how they can be undone. Their sample-based practice takes the form of films, video installations, cut-up texts and lecture performances. Based in New York since 2012, they have exhibited in museums, galleries, cinemas and torrent sites.
