Last seen at Revelation Perth International Film Festival with their acclaimed Terror Nullius (2018) legendary filmmakers Soda Jerk return with Hello Dankness.
In this masterpiece of plunderphonics/sampling cinema Australia’s most radical filmmakers explore contemporary U.S. politics and the era of the Trump presidency all told through their unique collages of pop culture and cinema.
Through the appropriation and reimagining of hundreds of found footage clips Hello Dankness is visually stunning often very funny and occasionally poignant as the directors offer their uniquely powerful exploration of recent history that takes the audience through a combination of conspiracies protests riots and a pandemic. An exhilarating celebration of our media-drenched subconscious and an incisive political commentary.
