Sat 20 Jan - Sat 27 Jan 2024

Hitch a ride into the dark heart of Australia with this blistering, badly behaved sample-based film that confronts the horrors of our national mythologies.

Part political satire, eco-horror and road movie, Terror Nullius is a political revenge fable that binds together a documentary impulse with speculative muckraking. The apocalyptic desert camps of Mad Max 2 become the site of refugee detention, bicentenary celebrations are ravaged by flesh-eating sheep, and the women of Australian cinema go vigilante on Mel Gibson.

By intricately remixing fragments of the nation’s cinema canon, Soda Jerk interrogates the unstable entanglement of fiction that underpins this country's vexed sense of self. Following its controversial premiere in 2018, Terror Nullius returns to ACMI with a cinematic provocation that’s as dark, hopeful and urgent as ever.
