SWIFF 2019 set to open with a bang
HIGHLY political two-person art collective Soda_Jerk will help launch the Screenwave International Film Festival's fourth edition with their hilarious and radical film, Terror Nullius, the opening night film of the festival on Thursday, January 10.
The Australian, New York-based duo made headlines recently when the Ian Potter Cultural Trust withdrew its support for this "very controversial piece of art".
Self-described by the artists as "a political revenge fable which offers an un-writing of Australian national mythology", Terror Nullius is pure fun; part political satire and road movie where animals and minorities conspire and not-so-nice guys finish last.
Where Russell Crowe's Romper Stomper 'Hando' collides with a vengeful seagull, and Mel Gibson's Mad Max is set upon by feminist bike gangs, including a young Nicole Kidman with BMX in tow.
"Soda_Jerk's Terror Nullius sets the tone perfectly for SWIFF 2019.
