Thursday 7 February, 6.00pm Double Feature Finale Night Cries: a Rural Tragedy (1989)  duration 17 min  written and directed by Tracey Moffatt  rated G Night Cries portrays the relationship between an elderly white woman and her adopted Aboriginal daughter. The sole carer for her dying mother, the daughter dutifully tends to her responsibilities, though her feelings of frustration, anguish, loneliness and disconnect are ever present. Shot entirely in a studio, the film conjures the vast, brightly vivid Australian landscape, suggestive of the daughter’s dream of an alternative reality to her domestic routine. Starring Marcia Langton, Akira Fitzgerald, Elizabeth Gentle, Anges Hardwick, Jimmy Little.


TERROR NULLIUS (2018)  HD video, 54mins  Soda_Jerk  unrated Part political satire, eco-horror and road movie, TERROR NULLIUS is a political revenge fable which offers an unwriting of Australian national mythologies. Binding together a documentary impulse with the bent plotlines of Australian film texts, Soda_Jerk’s revisionist history opens a willful 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, feminist motorcycle gangs rule the highways, and flesh-eating sheep are recast as anti-colonial insurgents.
