Terror Nullius Soda_Jerk, Australia, 2018, 54 min. Terror Nullius is a political revenge fable which offers an un-writing of Australian national mythology. It works entirely within and against the official archive to achieve a queering and othering of Australian cinema. Equal parts political satire, eco-horror and road movie, Terror Nullius is a world in which minorities and animals conspire, and not-so-nice white guys finish last. Where idyllic beaches host race riots, governments poll love-rights, and the perils of hypermasculinity are overshadowed only by the enduring horror of Australia’s colonizing myth of terra nullius. Introduced by members of Soda Jerk and followed by a post-screening discussion. 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.
