Tuesday 23 February - BMEC Theatre 7:30pm
Terror Nullius is a 55-minute film by Australian-born, New York-based video artists Soda_Jerk (siblings Dominique and Dan Angeloro) that makes a radical critique of Australian masculinity, refugee policy and our treatment of the Indigenous Australians.
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.
Co-Presented by Bathurst Regional Art Gallery (BRAG) as part of the Inland Sea of Sound Festival and Just Not Australian exhibition, the film will be screen in the BMEC Theatre.
Just Not Australian is on exhibition at Bathurst Regional Art Gallery from 20 February – 5 April 2021. For information about the exhibition click here:
