Co-Lab Projects, hyperreal film club, and Texas State Galleries present:
A film by Soda_Jerk
TERROR NULLIUS is a political revenge fable which offers an un-writing of Australian national mythology. This experimental sample-based film works entirely within and against the official archive to achieve a queering and othering of Australian cinema. Part 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 colonising myth of terra nullius.
Duration: 54 minutes followed by a Q&A with Dominique and Dan Angeloro of Soda_Jerk, then a happy hour with DJ The Bored Enthusiast.

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. Soda_Jerk was featured in the group exhibition "unrealpolitik" in the summer of 2017 at Co-Lab Projects' DEMO Gallery and will be exhibiting at Texas State Galleries September 17th-29th, 2018. www.sodajerk.com.au
