Exhilarating … Terror Nullius is arthouse and grindhouse … A crazy, punch-drunk, astral-projecting, bizarro roller-coaster ride through Australian cinema.”

Luke Buckmaster, The Guardian

If very controversial’ is another way of saying that the work is willing to start uncomfortable conversations, then we’ll happily wear it.” Soda_Jerk

Science fiction helps me posit a new equation in which a new approach can be formulated.” Larissa Sansour 

The videos in this program sample movies or use sci-fi tropes to present alternate histories that address conflict and displacement, rights and identities. In Space Exodus, Larissa Sansour (Denmark’s representative at the next Venice Biennale) becomes the first Palestinian on the moon, trying from space to re-establish communication with Jerusalem. Nation Estate, her Swiftian response to Middle East deadlock, offers a vertical solution to Palestinian statehood. In the Future… (screening for the first time in Canada) explores the use of archaeology as a political weapon. Siblings Dan and Dominique Angeloro, the two-person collective known as Soda_​Jerk, describe Terror Nullius as a political revenge fable which offers an un-writing of Australian national mythology.”
