As part of the inaugural Spilt Milk Festival taking place in Sligo on the weekend of Fri. 22nd to Sun. 24th November, we are delighted to present a one-off screening of the Australian mashup Terror Nullius.
Dir: SODA_JERK, 2018, Aus., 54mins, HD video
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 ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image).
