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.

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
CURRENT #bitres ARTIST
Adrian Armstrong is an artist from Omaha, NE based out of Austin Texas. He recieved his BFA from the University of Nebraska - Lincoln in 2014. He is also the founder of Brown State of Mind, an organization creating opportunities and resources for marginalized creatives.
Armstrong’s work depicts an “every man” scenario pertaining to those in the American black diaspora. Although his work is based heavily in self reflection, his work also is meant to be relatable. With topics such as systematic racism, sexuality, police brutality, fashion, and more, Armstrong speaks on topics of black struggle and triumph. Through deconstruction and reconstruction, Armstrong aims to change what can be defined as portraiture in an almost surreal way.
