GLASGOW SHORT FILM FESTIVAL 2019 OPENING SCREENING

At once satire, eco-horror and road movie, this political revenge fable offers an unwriting of Australian national mythologies. Soda_Jerk’s revisionist history opens a wilful narrative space where cinema fictions and historical facts permeate each other in new ways. The apocalyptic desert camps of Mad Max 2 become the site of refugee detention, flesh-eating sheep are recast as anti-colonial insurgents and a feminist motorcycle gang goes vigilante on Mel Gibson. 
The short film version of a triple grindhouse bill mashed up into one all-nighter mega trip, a miraculous creation that keeps slipping in and out of the cracks between set genres – Christoffer Olofsson, Uppsala Short Film Festival

Formed in Sydney in 2002, Soda_Jerk is a two-person art collective working 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, through sampling, re-editing, superimposition and humour.
