DIVERSITY ● DIFFERENCE ● OTHERNESS
After almost three decades stranded on Earth near Johannesburg, South Africa, a hated and exploited extraterrestrial refugee population is forcibly evicted from one militarized camp to be moved to another by the munitions corporation that has a stake in alien technology. While one alien makes a desperate attempt to return home, a hapless middle manager in charge of the evacuation gets a hard lesson in humanity. First-time director Blomkamp’s critically acclaimed debut film uses a modified assembled-footage format that lends immediacy to this parable of apartheid and anti-immigrant sentiment. In English, Nyanja, Afrikaans, Zulu, Xhosa, and Southern Sotho with English subtitles. Contains mature content. (35mm Presentation)
