Soda Jerk

Soda Jerk is an Australian artist duo who make sample-based films with a rogue documentary impulse. They are fundamentally interested in the politics of images; how they circulate, whom they benefit and how they can be undone. After a decade living and working in New York, they have recently relocated to Europe. Soda Jerk have exhibited extensively within the fields of art and experimental cinema, and have collaborated on projects with cyberfeminist collective VNS Matrix and electronic music group The Avalanches. Their recent feature Hello Dankness (2022) premiered at the Berlinale in 2023 and won numerous cinema awards including Best Feature at the Atlanta Film Festival and Lausanne Underground Film & Music Festival, as well as the Blackmagic Design Australian Innovation Award at the Melbourne International Film Festival. Hello Dankness follows their controversial political revenge fable Terror Nullius (2018), named by The Guardian as one of the best Australian movies of the decade.
