Synopsis

This revenge fable offers an un-writing of Australian national mythology. As a radical critique of Australian masculinity, refugee policy and the treatment of Indigenous Australians it works entirely within and against the official archive, using scraps of Australian cinema and archival footage in order to achieve a queering and othering of Australian cinema. Part political satire, eco-horror and road movie, Terror Nullius is a world in which 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.

Reviews/Press Quotes
“A weird, dazzling, kinetic, dizzyingly ambitious, sensationally mishmashed beast of an Australian film, one part video art installation project, one part revisionist documentary, and one part, I don’t know – LSD-infused YouTube compilation video?” – Luke Buckmaster, The Guardian


“One hell of a ride into the dark heart of Australia; a blistering, badly behaved sample-based film that ‘confronts the horror of our contemporary moment’.” – Sophia Watson, FilmInk
