Short Film of the Month- Alive in Joburg

Here is my next installment of Short Film of the Month

This one is made by director, Neill Blomkamp, and was the short that inspired his feature length film, District 9.

District 9 is one of my top 5 favorite Sci-Fi movies.  It is a "realistic" vision of what our relationship could be with an alien species that comes to earth and tries to live among us.  Being from South Africa, Blomkamp, has good reason to imagine the human response to difference as one of fear and violence.
This short film is shot in the same documentary style as the movie and even has Sharlto Copley as the lead which makes both movies feel that much more real.
