Soda_Jerk awarded 2020 Art and Moving Image Commission
The $60,000 Commission is awarded biennially and is one of Australia’s richest art and moving image commissions.
The presentation of Netsploits, commissioned by the Adelaide Film Festival Investment Fund, will be accompanied by a selected survey of Soda_Jerk’s 17-year practice at the Samstag Museum.
The keenly anticipated follow up work to 2018’s TERROR NULLIUS, Netsploits addresses the seismic cultural transformation wrought by the internet. The work merges documentary with narrative film running riot through the genres of dystopian sci-fi, Hong Kong horror, 70s political thrillers, 90s sitcoms, internet instructional VHS, Soviet spy films, anime, dank memes and the blockbuster musicals of the early 80s.
